    [EDIT]

    Just to let you guys know: this is very likely not legit and legal. There seem to be no news or press releases of any kind regarding this "offer". Since I have serious doubts about this, but can't prove anything otherwise, I will leave the links - for now. Just consider yourself warned and remember that you are doing this at your own risk - in case you sign up, get keys or download software.

    [EDIT 2]

    How are you guys having problems with it? The US one works just fine.

    The obvious thing to do is: Since it's a Microsoft site, to use Internet Explorer. I tried in Firefox but I kept getting errors. I used IE and it worked fine.

    Both links work for me on FF, however is it worth it and what are the benefits this sub carries?

    Worked for me, this is very strange for MS to be doing... not like them.

    Wonder what the catch is.

    I'm snagging Vista Enterprise Sp2. This is really awesome, not having to wait to get ISOs from sites that shall not be named. Plus I have an extra set of keys for everything now! Yay! :D
