Excuses? There should be no excuses…

Microsoft WANT you to use their software and to encourage you to use it. I came across the following site which Microsoft allows you to use their software for a trial period (full product) – in some cases for 90 days, others are valid for a whole 180 days.
Software includes Windows 7, Server 2008 R2, SQL Server, Cloud Services and more
I also suggest to many learners that 180 days is plenty of time when evaluating or learning a product. It is quite straightforward to install the software into a virtual machine and then you have the full product to utilize at your leisure. No more excuses to learn interactively rather than solely with a book.
