Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The problem so far is that it is legal but not permanent residence.  The student status affects that.  And reading on the new EU visa that gives freedom of mobility specifically excludes those in student status.

That's my problem, I got locked into student status.

I was actually under the impression that the Netherlands and EU Scandanavian countries were actually more difficult to immigrate to.  I had considered Iceland until the meltdown as well as the Czech Republic as I believe the cost of living is lower.  But until I can secure the permanent part of the residency, I don't believe I have the freedom of mobility and that I have to start over with the required residency time.
