I would have paid UNISA anyway, all the extra stuff is just gravy.
UNISA probably pays very little. It's a huge investment for MS to have students spend all their early years using Windows, MS Office, and Visual Studio. This way they ensure that graduates have only MS skills, and hence companies have to buy MS software to be productive.

The weird thing is with all the free stuff on Dreamspark the Office suite isn't one of them.

I would still like to see the ability of switching off the dumb start screen, and have the old start menu instead.

The start screen is the dumbest idea ever, MAC gives you the option of Touch UI or Desktop UI why can't Microsoft?
