Microsoft Easy Open License?
Posted on 2004-09-26
I'm trying to buy Visual Studio .NET Academic as I'm, obviously, in college. I found a website that has a decent price and is a trusted website by myself, but the licensing system is "Microsoft Easy Open License", and they don't require any sort of Student ID or verification to purchase the software.
I'm afraid I'm going to get the software and be asked to submit "x" document(s) to Microsoft to prove a lot of crap just to get a license, and I'd REALLY prefer to ignore the hassle.
Does anyone know what exactly this system is (besides what Microsoft says it is, as that doesn't really help me a lot), and if I would be ok to purchase it considering it doesn't require identification?
