I suggest you ...

Unlock the features for students.

I was excited to see Azure offered free to students via Dreamspark, but no SQL, VM, etc??? 9 out of 10 features are locked to the student license. I understand restrictions, but why does Microsoft even offer Azure to students if they aren't going to let them use it for the best Azure features.

Please drop the restrictions on student accounts. It will help Microsoft in the long run...students are not running businesses with these products while in school, but they might when they graduate.

Thanks,

Nick

    The OS's alone are more than 5GB for servers. I do agree though. This is extremely frustrating.

    So far i do agree this Nick's suggestion, being a student, i do believe that all features should be unlocked but limited for example: storage would be limited to 5 GB, up to 3 VMs, we don't need much, but just enough to be able to develop and setup systems that might lead to new projects and businesses. Otherwise, why bothers creating azure for dreamspark?
