    On that link you just got these two links not for product itself.

    I tried above link with my live userid/pass, it is landing to download page rather than .htm file you talked about. have a look at it again, moreover, I would like you to use IE rather than Fire fox or other internet browser for this task.

    See if works for you (thats the page where the download now link from the previous site should take you).

    You have to fill out a form in order to be able to download.

    Works fine in firefox by the way.

    Just to clarify, you cannot (legally) download the Developer Edition of SQL Server.  It is only available through MSDN and for purchase, what you can download is the Evaluation Edition of SQL Server which has an expiration date on it.  The link that has been provided is to the Evaluation Edition not the Developer Edition.
