Anyone know where I can pick up this software?
Believe it or not I still use it and find it very useful. I want to setup a media server for my buddy and would like to get a legit copy.

Another 2 questions.

If I have a trial version and install it, will it ask me to purchase a license copy, and is it possible?

I looked on ebay and found 1 copy for $89.99 and a few others for $189.00.
Considering it only cost $30, that is a big jump in price.

To answer your question about the trial, I don't know but it might be worth a try. Load it up and see what happens.
Whs 2011 was built on Server 2008 which I believe is still viable so you may be able to buy it, if you try, let us know...

Windows server 2008 has a Jan 2020 end of life.

Good Luck

WHS 2011 could be used on all the microservers I believe as long as:
1) you have the VGA adapter so you can see to install it.
2) You can find drivers for your hardware.

I have tried 2011 and did not like it.
IMHO one should stay with WHS v1 as long as you can, that is what I am doing.
But there will come a time when it needs to be reloaded and we will not be able to get updates anymore for it, Microsoft will make sure of that.

Good Luck, hope this helps.
