Microsoft has rolled out a free evaluation version of Windows 10 Enterprise edition so you can test-drive the new OS before deciding if you really want to upgrade from Windows 7 or 8.1.
On Wednesday, Microsoft officially started pushing out the final version of its Windows 10 operating system as a free upgrade to Windows 7 and 8.1 in 190 countries. The free upgrade offer is for one year.
For organizations, the company has released a free 90-day evaluation version of Windows 10 Enterprise OS, so that the IT professional can try out deployment and management scenarios, test compatibility with hardware and applications, and to get hands on experience with Windows 10 Enterprise features to decide whether the latest OS fits for their organizations or not.
The enterprise edition of Windows 10 is geared for mid- and large-size businesses to better deal with security threats, deploying and updating applications and handling technical support issues. And, it doesn’t offer the same features you’ll find in the Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro editions that Microsoft has been pushing out as a free upgrade.
The evaluation copy of the software is available in 11 different languages, including US English and British English, as well as Chinese and Spanish. There will be a 64- and 32-bit ISO, in addition to 64- and 32-bit LTSB ISOs for IT departments that would like to control how and when Microsoft updates are added to Windows 10.
