MSDN vs. TechNet

For a period of time, I have access to both an MSDN and a TechNet subscription. Both offer Microsoft software for download.  I wondered what the similarities and differences were between the two subscriptions. I copied the two download lists into Excel and aligned them. Most of the material I would never use.  Some products I have never heard of.  I present the lists, current as of today, for your reviewing pleasure.
