Assalamu `alaykum,

Several students asked me about the offer of free genuine Microsoft products so I got you some more information.

Cairo University signed an agreement with Microsoft whereby Microsoft would offer educational licenses to the University professors and students. Educational license means that the products should be used for educational, not commercial, purposes. The list of software is not only limited to Vista but also many other MS products.  Here is how you can get these products:
  1. Download, print and fill out the attached application.
  2. Take the application to the Scientific Computing Center, which is located in the campus of the Faculty of Computers. Bring along your student or professor ID.
  3. The engineers at the Center will register your name and email address at a Microsoft server, which will email you a CD key and registration instructions.
  4. Follow the instructions that you'll get from Microsoft and use the key to download and install the genuine MS products that you select.
That's all.
