Windows 7: Downloading Windows 7

Downloading Windows 7

Is there a legitimate Microsoft website from where I can download Windows 7 and perhaps try out the ultimate version for 30 days or so?

I know it's available on the torrent sites, but you never know if it's been "modified" so I'd prefer to download from Microsoft.

Thank you

I've installed the software and I'm really looking forward to trying this out.

Is there any way to tell just how many days are left in your trail period and does the rearm command work to extend the trial if you need to?

On the 90 day enterprise Trial you can't rearm, but you get the same amount of time as if you had another copy and rearmed it anyway

Good point. I suppose if I did want to trial the Enterprise version a bit longer, I could reinstall it anyways as it is on a test machine.

Is there at least a way of telling just how much time remains in the trial period?

Thanks for the screenshot. Mine doesn't show that, but perhaps it's because I haven't received the prompt to activate it yet.
