    I got a free (instead of 19$) dev account via dreamspark, using a weird russian online course thing, and I was wondering, will it be active forever, like Regular accounts?

    P.S. If I "abused" the system, it's because PayPal wouldn't let me pay without adding a card, even though I have 72$ on my account.

    I got mine though college and I haven't been in a computer course in over a year but I still have it active . Then again my degree is in computer science so it could be that.
    Anyways I bet you will have to pay after a year

    Dev center account will not expire, it is for lifetime or forever (or whatever it is).. But dreamspark account will expire after a year. after that if you want dreamspark account, you can renew it.

    Yes I am sure, Once you (or anyone) signed up to Devcenter using dreamspark account or by paying $19 will get the same result. Microsoft extended the Devcenter account for lifetime (Earlier it was yearly subscription). Students from dreamspark get that account for free. That's it.

    Stop worrying about this, just release your app on the store :)
