The article seems to suggest that anyone can sign up for free and get free access to M$ programs. Surely there must be a catch?

Not sure, I subscribe to Technet but they have always charged (a lot!) in the past. Well, I say 'a lot' but actually for what you get it's quite good value for money if you use it sufficiently.

[Update]: Ars Technica is reporting that this offer may not be for one year as first thought, but only three months. Never-the-less, it's best to get in early and make the most of this while you can.

[Update 2]: It appears as though there are errors in requesting keys and we are hearing that this offer may have been limited to a select few rather than public. Microsoft has not officially responded to requests for comment.

[Update 3]: We are getting reports from members that many who had been successfully added to the subscription have now been removed. It seems that this was all an error on Microsoft's part.

The UK link doesn't work either.
