Microsoft Evaluation Download Resource Center

One question I get asked often when speaking at events is “Where do I download <Insert technology name here>?”  Microsoft does a decent job of making these software titles readily available in evaluation form, though since I spend much time referring audience members to my TechNet blog, I’ve decided to start posting links to the most often-requested technology downloads here.  I’ll try to keep coming back and updating the list as necessary.
