Still not sure you want to move to Windows 7 yet? Maybe you want to give it a shake down on your system in a dual boot mode and see if it will work for you.
Currently there are no demos of the consumer version of Windows 7 but this Windows 7 Enterprise version will allow you to see the system in action for up to 90 days. Ideally this OS is intended for the corporate environment so you can connect to your server however, anyone can download and install this trial.
Originally released in September 2009, the 90 day trial has been giving an extension and you can now download and install it until 31 Dec 2010.
There are some caveats mentioned here before you use the 90 day trial:
- You have 10 days to activate the product. If not activated within 10 days, the system will shut down once every hour until activated. Unsure on how to activate? Visit our FAQ.
- The 90-day Trial is the full working version of the Windows 7 Enterprise, the version most of you will be working with in your corporate environment. It will not require a product key (it is embedded with the download).
- The 90-day Trial will shut down once every hour when you have reached the end of the 90-day evaluation period.
- After the 90-day Trial expires, if you wish to continue to use Windows 7 Enterprise, please note that you will be required to purchase and perform a clean installation of Windows 7, including drivers and applications. Please keep this in mind; Windows 7 Enterprise is not available through retail channels.
