We told you earlier in point 11 of following topic that Microsoft will release a free 90-day trial version of Windows 10 after releasing Windows 10 final version to public
Now the time has come. The fully functional and fully-featured 90-day trial versions of Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB (Long Term Servicing Branch) are available for download in form of offline ISO files. The trial version build of Windows 10 Enterprise is version 1709 which was recently released as Fall Creators Update to Windows 10 users. The trial version of Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB is 2016 as no Fall Creators Update was released to LTSB users.
The release of trial versions was already expected as Microsoft always releases trial versions of its latest operating systems to public. Microsoft has done the same in past when the company released Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 trial versions to public.
Most of the people who were using genuine Windows 7 or 8.1, have already upgraded to Windows 10 as a part of the free upgrade program. Also there are many people who are participating in Windows Insider program and already enjoying Windows 10 RTM in their systems.
But there might be a few people who are not using a qualifying OS in their computers to free upgrade to Windows 10 or they just don’t want to upgrade to Windows 10 and first want to test it.
The free 90-day trial version of Windows 10 might be very helpful for such people who want to try Windows 10 first before upgrading or purchasing the new OS.
Also there are many features which are only available in Windows 10 Enterprise and not available in Home or Pro editions such as Windows To Go Creator, AppLocker, Direct Access, Credential Guard, Device Guard, operating system deployment and comprehensive device and app management, etc. So installing this trial version of Windows 10 Enterprise might help you in testing those exclusive features as well.
And many people wanted to try the most popular and fastest Windows 10 edition i.e. Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB in their computers. This edition is the most lightweight edition of Windows 10 as it doesn’t contain any modern (metro) app like Store, Xbox, Cortana, Microsoft Edge, etc. It also comes with classic Calculator and Windows Photo Viewer programs which are not present in any other Windows 10 edition. So its a good time to try and test this awesome edition of Windows 10.
