I'd like to test/compare some software packages, probably 10-15 at a time, on either virtual machines or older desktops or laptops and none of them have OS's of current viability (they have Vista I believe). So I'd like to test anythig from Win 7 onward as well as possibly multiple OS's for the same software to see if there are any issues with different OS's. Does anyone know if MS has any programs to get either temp licenses for their software like 7-30 day licenses or any kind of "research" license? I know they used to have Technet which I loved but they seemed to have done awaywith that and the MSDN is outrageously priced. I guess I could get refurbished licensed which can cost like $7 each but I don't want to apply for the whole process - if anyone knows about this process i'd like to know how difficult it was.
