Is it possible to download an evaulation copy even if you are not a Technet or MSDN subscriber RRS feed

  • Question

  • From what I have read, it appears that you can, but I have spent 20 minutes  on Microsoft websites to keep finding myself on the same pages I started on. Is there a download link for the evaluation version available?

    There is no trial copy of WHS 2011 available for download, just some kind
    of online thing to try out.

  • Yes, I was aware of that link, but I had read that a 120 day evaluation copy was also available. Sadly, this appears to be misinformation.

     

    Thanks for replying.
