Ever wanted to test Microsoft software in a sandbox environment? What about being able to test new applications immediately, without having to set up a test environment of your own? Now you can, with MSDN and TechNet Virtual Labs. Virtual Labs are guided, hands-on lab modules hosted by Microsoft that can be completed in 90 minutes.
