I"m currently a student going back to school to be re-trained after my career was outsourced to India. I'm interested in purchasing Win 7 primarily for basic college projects and home use. I know that I want the new Microsoft Word, Outlook excel, and power-point. Can someone suggest the appropriate version of Win 7 and if and where I can get the OS on CD? I'm also unclear as to how one goes about taking advantage of the student discounts. I've gone to Microsoft putting my college .edu extension and am eligible. What more is there to do?
