Some colleges and online programs can sell name brand, fully functional software for a very low price due to the nature of their courses. Becoming a dealer, or sales rep, is also a way to get some software at discounted prices.
you might be talking bout IL_Duce's post....was refering to DMo224

I know of 3 universities that have sold XP pro to students for $25. They were full copies with licenses. The were UK, WVU, and Marshall. I'm sure other colleges and universities do that.

For those people that become dealers, the last cost that I saw for their first purchase was $35. After the initial purchase, the price went up to the standard wholesale, and the dealer sells in at retail value.

For $35, I received XP Pro (full, licensed version), and it came in a presentation box containing an XP baseball bobble head, an XP baseball card, a baseball with XP in a sealed plastic presentation box, and a pouch of Big League Chew sour cherry bubblegum. It could be used for a client to help get more business. There's also monthly newsletters and other support information.
