You must register for this, but if you already own the standard you get upgraded to Pro, and you get your support extended for a year. Me I plan on donating to them regardless, this is very good of them to follow through on their promise. So go register, and I encourage you to donate as well.

These are the consumers of the future."' — Glad to see MS is worried about linux adoption.
