You have to register for that… and I doubt they'd accept a retired widower wanting to compare it with Linux or Mavericks:
This is evaluation software designed for IT professionals interested in trying Windows 8.1 Enterprise on behalf of their organization. We do not recommend that you install this evaluation if you are not an IT professional or not professionally managing corporate networks.

I am pretty sure the process is automated, as long as you supply a valid email address. I get the feeling you have made your mind up though! smile

I'll not deny that it would take something pretty outstanding to get me to move back to a Microsoft OS… and I've seen nothing to convince me that Windows 8.x is it tongue

The scoring system used in (I think) gymnastics has a lot to be said for it- ignore the extremes and take the average of what's left tongue

It certainly is for all the Server evaluations that I've downloaded over the years. Registration is just a formality.

Windows 8 itself is not that bad, if you get away from the modern Ui and put a third party start menu application on it then it works pretty well. it is certainly faster than windows 7, boots up faster and shuts down faster.

But to be honest, if you have no need to move back to a MS OS, then don't.

Upgraded my Win 8 tablet to 8.1 and now have had a couple of BSODs and one of MS's own programmes (the solitaire card suite) won't even start up anymore. 8.1 seems to have some problems at the moment (at least on this device). I haven't upgraded my Win 8 laptop due to the issues on the tablet.
