We IT Pro-focused Technical Evangelists are often asked, “Hey.. Where can I find the download to try out such-and-such software?”
And after I find out what they actually meant by “such-and-such”, I usually just tell them essentially to “google it on Bing”.
But that’s not sufficient.
So what I am doing instead, on this page, is to give you a list of the most important, most commonly requested downloads and evaluations. And here are the latest and greatest:
- Windows Server 2012 R2
- Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012 R2
- Windows 8.1 Enterprise (90-day Eval)
- Windows 10 Technical Preview for Enterprise
