    So is it free free or are there hidden costs? (like a webspark fee)

    Webspark is free and it gives you a limited free MSDN subscription.
    Azure requires a credit card but you get the free time up to it's value.
    You don't have to use azure.
    The only thing I saw is you need to post a website in 6 months and
    report it through the program to keep the program active for 3 years.
    You can self host your site if you want to.
    Please read the program agreement.
    I am downloading server 2008 and visual studio 2010 right now.

    If you download server 2008,you need to install the web version
    to get the key to work.
    It won't work if you install the others.
    There are multiple versions on the disk.
    Visual studio has it's own key built in,so it just
    activates itself.

    Good find! I won't be installing any of it (already have what I need) but what a good opportunity to pass around. Good looking out-

    I had some questions about webspark because there were
    differences in the Faq's and downloaded program requirements
    and seemed to be a program exit fee.

    I emailed them and got this back.
