Microsoft to shut down TechNet subscription service

ZDNet: One of the best software deals around is about to be retired. Microsoft announced today that after 15 years it will shut down its TechNet subscriptions service in 60 days. Microsoft has other, similar programs, but none are as generous as TechNet.

The story is too old to be commented.

It is an outdated service. Visual Studio and other products have free versions now, so TechNet subscription is mostly outdated service. Visual Studio Express is the same great product that the full version of Visual Studio is, but is great for beginners. Visual Studio as a whole is a great product too. And, MSDN subscription is there too.

Combine that with subscription based Office and you have little reason to get TechNet.

Goodbye TechNet. I'll miss the low prices, that's for sure.

I've never actually used it much, so I guess it deserves to be shut down.
