I have recently joined a company and there the developers PC runs Ubuntu. The development environment is however .NET and so, each developer gets a Windows 2008 R2 Standard Edition Virtual PC with Visual Studio 2010 / SQL Server installed.
When I launch the Windows 2008 R2 in VMWare and get the properties, I see this -
In addition, if I lookup on the desktop, on the right corner, I get this message as well.
And the developers tell me that this VM is available since January. How could that be possible?
I have checked if they have some scheduled script which extends the trial period (as described here), but no, they have not.
The Developer / SysAdmin guy who built this VM has left now and no one else has an answer.
Can someone clarify how this can be even possible?
