I don't know if this is new or not. It was to me and I couldn't see it posted here already.

If you're interested MS are now giving away 120 day trial discs - just sign up from the MS website and it'll be posted out free of charge.

I did this a few weeks ago and my disks arrived about 10 days latter, all free including free shipping!

Only thing to note - the software comes ONLY on DVD, and my server has a CD-ROM drive so I had to hook up a DVD drive to install it.

Otherwise well worth playing with.

Be aware (and correct me if I'm wrong) you can't licence this ver to extend it. If you like this bit of kit you need a fresh install of a fully licenced version to run with.
