The deal page isn't live yet, but this one's Twitter official: Windows 7 will be just $30 for US college students. Full details are expected any minute, but for now, there's just a placeholder. UPDATED: It's up.

The conditions of the deal, which just went live, are as simple as can be: If you're an active student at an American university, or you at least have a working email address from a university (thanks, my old college!), you're entitled to a $30 price for Windows 7 Home Premium (update: or Pro!), which is normally at least $120. Best of all, the offer's good until January 3rd, so you've got plenty of time to bag a license, brah. [Microsoft]
