Today Microsoft announced a new program for students called DreamSpark that's all about getting our developer tools into the hands of students. Best of all, its free! Here is a Channel8 interview with Bill Gates on the program and here is a link to information about the program itself. The program includes Visual Studtio, Expression Studio, XNA Game Studio and some other ancillary items. If you are a student, enjoy! If not, please forward this info to any students you know who would be interested.
