“But Kevin.. I don’t have a roomfull of machines to install these on.”
Well.. if you have one spare machine with decent memory that can run 64-bit OS like Windows Server 2008 R2, you can install that evaluation, and then build virtual machines in Hyper-V to try the rest of these products out.
Better yet – if you have a TechNet Plus Subscription, you can get all the software to evaluate with no time limits.
“Where do I get that subscription?”
