Are you familiar with Dreamspark? It's a website that's been out for a year or two (by Microsoft) that allows you to download computer programming and server software for free if you have a college e-mail address. Some stuff they have:
MS Visual Studio 2008 Expression Studio 3 Windows Server 2008 etc
I verified myself as a student because I have a college e-mail account where I am getting my Masters, and was able to quickly download Expression Studio 3. I think this might also work for high school students but I'm not sure how you could verify yourself. If anyone could clarify, that would be great.
Just wanted to share this!

There was a thread with more info about the site posted, but I can't find it ATM. It's basically like the same thing though. I registered at my college and was sent an account so I could download Microsoft software as well.
I used this website last year to download MS Visual Studio 2008. And yes, it does also work for high school students. I forget exactly the process I had to go through to get verified, but they outline it pretty well on the website. If you haven't already looked at the site and are in high school/college and wouldn't mind some free MS programs, I'd check it out.
