Technically no. But chances are those codes don't work already.

Here is a link to a free version of Windows 7 Enterprise x64:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/cc442495

Free for up to 6 months, then you reinstall for another 6 months. All legal.



EDIT:
Looks like it can be rearmed for longer than 700+ days

Protip: ubuntu! "Ubuntu is a fast, secure and easy-to-use operating system used by millions of people around the world." Cheesy

And you could aways use LinuxCoin (A lightweight Debian based OS with everything ready to go.) --> http://bitcointalk.org/?topic=7374.0

Some guy is using HyperV from MS for mining rigs.
Or you can also use Windows Server 2008 R2 with SP1 free for 180 days
If you like experiments, you can also try ReactOS. It's free, small, fast and easy, but it's in alpha state forever.

But I recomend some linux distribution (for example ubuntu) with smartcoin

I have tried ReactOS in VirtualBox year ago and it was unusable. However, situation may have changed. Stability may vary between VBox and real hardware... you have to try yourself, installation is really fast.

Most of the guides for dual boot, mention that windows has to go on first, and then Linux. But maybe some Linux gurus around here might be able to help.

Yeah that's the only one. There was dude hangin around that got it working for mining IIRC.

Short of that, you can download 7 Enterprise trial and use it for 90 days. Once your 90 days are up, reinstall.

You just have to go to the command line as administrator and do the slmgr -rearm when it says that its expired.

Free windows doesn't exist unless you steal it.  Try linux.  It's nice and free.

I just want to know is there a free microsoft windows os?

ReactOS is free and very usable. I fortunately didn't have to install windows on any machine for the last 6 years, but do follow ReactOS, in case I am forced to develop for Windows at gun point. Smiley

Ubuntu is a pretty friendly distro for windows users.  However, setting it up to mine may be a challenge if you are very new to linux.

It does exist, you are ignorant on the topic. And it doesn't require you to steal it.

Not saying linux isn't nice, just has a steep learning curve.

Free trial != Free

You should call Microsoft and ask them for information on their "Free Windows".  Then you can trot back here and update me on my ignorance.

Lets talk semantics....

Even if I pay Microsoft $300 for their OS, I don't own it. I'm leasing it from them. Your a Linux fan, is what I say here wrong?

So, technically speaking you are right, there is no 'free' version of Windows. And I use the word 'free' here as in 'to own outright, with no exchange of money'. Sort of like how you CAN own your Linux OS, and it was 'free' in this sense.

Now if you understand that you can't own the Microsoft OS, whether it is a free trial or you pay good money for it, then I assume we aren't discussing 'free' in that meaning.

I assumed we are talking about being able to install/use a Microsoft Windows OS without restrictions made to limit the functionality of the OS (handicapping). And in that sense, I am correct. There is a current version of Windows (Win7), that can be downloaded for free off the internet, directly from Microsoft, legally, with no limitations (other than the time limits, which can be extended past two years, legally).
