A fantastic initiative by Microsoft to enable students with development tools at no cost! The initiative was announced by Bill Gates at IIT, Delhi, India.

Bill Gates announced this first in February for US and few other countries. By end of this year the program should cover most major countries.

It is a great step forward for students and even the Microsoft Company. The students can test their skills for free and Microsoft will have publicity also for free.
