Have you ever wanted to mess around with a copy of Windows Server 2012, Exchange Server, SQL Server, or some other Microsoft product targeted at businesses?
You can download fully functional copies of Windows Server, Windows 7, Windows 8, Exchange, SQL Server, Office, and a shitload more for free from Microsoft’s own website.
Yep. No pirate bay needed. No risk of malware. The only catch is that they’re eval copies. They’re fully functional, but only licensed for 90 days (most of them at least).
Here you go: Microsoft TechNet Evaluation Center
Have fun kids! And remember, if you want to use it for more than 90 days, you have to buy it. You can’t just get another copy with a different email address and reinstall.
In all seriousness though, if you’re running a business and you’re too cheap pay for software, just use Linux instead. All of the functionality, no legal issues. And it’s not that hard either.
