    They said there is an issue on that page with the Eval so it was pulled. I believe they will relist it when they fix the issue though I am not sure how long it has been.

    I've been checking in ever since 1809 was re-released and it hasn't been added. Probably just an excuse to get people to try Azure. lol

    Maybe they don't want public links to Server EVALs as those, contrary to Windows 10 ones, can be upgraded to non-EVAL with a simple command.

    Just a thought.

    Because MS hates those who question whether mother knows best or not.
