So as I college student I would love to grab a windows 7 for my new gaming PC build, but all I can find is Windows 8. Is there anywhere to get windows 7 with a student discount anymore? I would hope I don't have to explain why windows 8 is not exactly gaming worthy.

If you're a student in Science, Mathematics, Engineering, or Technology related studies your school may have access to Dreamspark Premium which will give you access to Windows 7 Professional and Windows 8 Professional.

Yes I believe that Biology does count. You can sign up for the non-premium Dreamspark which grants access to a number of Microsoft products but does not include Windows 7 or Windows 8.

Hmm seems I have to contact my school directly, and its Winter Break. Damnit. Not sure what I can do now.

Install Windows 7 Professional or Windows 8 Professional on a 30 day trial
