From The Minnesota Daily:
Students looking for free and cheap — not to mention legal — software have a new option on campus.
In June, the Board of Regents approved a three-year, $2.7 million software contract. As a result, students taking at least one credit can buy licenses for commonly used Microsoft products, in some cases for less than the price of a meal at a fast-food restaurant. The deal is good for students at any of the University’s campuses.
Windows users at the University can buy a Windows XP Professional upgrade CD for $3.60 plus tax.
