Thats good news. I think I receive about 25 GB free storage from them at the moment but use less than 100 MB.

The one true thing I didn't like about SkyDrive was that it came pre-built with windows and it lagged my internet connection, luckily they've optimized the client configuration in order to avoid this and have it personalized to our liking (And broadband :p)

In my experience, the discounts you receive from your employer are for Office 2013 purchases, not for the subscription. I was able to buy Office 2013 for $10, but that's not Office 365, so I can't take advantage of the unlimited storage. Maybe it varies from company to company, though...

Yeah I had the same benefit, although now I'm more interested in the cloud storage than getting into office 365 and Microsoft luckily gives both cheaper than the other solutions :p

Hopefully they start giving new benefits for partner employees :)
