You have to be kidding - buy a subscription to Technet if you want more than a 3 month trial !

Sorry if you have taken offence but no one is going to give you a legit key - one used, its used - and we have to pay for them!

Technet is a worthwhile investment if you need to trial and devleop systems over a longer time frame than that allowed by "trail products"

If you understood licensing, you would know why he reacted that way.  The key is the license, and the license costs between $500-800, so to ask for one - even for testing - is a violation of copyright rules, EE rules, and common decency.  Assuming you simply didn't understand it ... no big deal.  Just know that you cannot get a key from some one else.  You must purchase the license from Microsoft (or qualified partners).  As KCTS said, TechNet exists for that very purpose ... testing and learning/training.  You can get it for as little as $250 ... I would recommend a TechNet subscription for what you are doing.

apology accepted.  i realize that ..i don't want a legit key and wasn't expecting one. i just threw a question out there and was wondering if someone has a key that can be used as a temporary one that Microsoft will accept..  its done everyday with windows desktop software. but thank you for writing back and squaring things up, thats very manly of you. :)

i don't want a legit key and wasn't expecting one so you want a non-legitimate key?
I suggest you read the EE terms and conditions - its software piracy

Licensing for desktop OS's is no different than with server OS's, which made me question your statement about "its done everyday with desktop software".

Clearly, two correct answers were given to this question, although I think KCTS got things started on the wrong foot.
