Windows for Developers?

Unfortunately, in order to do some BlackBerry hacking, it looks like I need a copy of MS Windows, to run under some sort of virtualization software. It’s possible to get most of the bits and pieces sort of working under Linux, but I don’t want to spend too much time fiddling; I’d rather spend it hacking.

To be brief and to the point: anyone out there know if there are deals for developers, open source or otherwise, to buy a legitimate copy of Windows? It’d sure be easy to just download it, but I believe in respecting other developers’ licenses just as I want them to respect mine.

However, if I could save a few bucks and spend them on my daughter Helen, instead of Mr. Gates and company, I sure wouldn’t mind. Any ideas?
