Free Windows 10 VM

Windows running in Hyper-VYou can get a special developer enabled VM of Windows 10 for VMWareHyper-VVirtualBox, and Parallels. This VM has a time limited version, expiring in April 2021 of Windows 10 (2004 version), and includes Visual Studio with the UWP, .NET desktop, and Azure workflows enabled and also includes the Windows Template Studio extension, Visual Studio Code, plus Windows Subsystem for Linux enabled with Ubuntu installed and Developer mode enabled.

It’s a 20 GB download that you can get here. The screenshot is Window 10 (fully licensed!) running under Hyper-V. I keep some old development software on it that’s a real pain to reinstall. I just have to keep it backed up and can easily copy it to my next PC. Much less hassle!
