Students within the School of Science at ECU have access to a range of FREE Software to assist with their studies.
This includes a large suite of Microsoft products including server applications. VMWare products are also fallible free of charge to students. If you’re undertaking a computing course the use of virtual machines is essential.
For Microsoft products goto: https://msdnaa.scss.ecu.edu.au/
For VMWARE goto: http://vmap.ssci.ecu.edu.au/
For Linux and more advanced users there is a very fast mirror available via AARNet here: https://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/ Ubuntu users are already using this mirror by default (if you set location to Australia). So theres no excuse for not patching your Linux machines while on campus.
