Is there anywhere to get a Lync Server account easily, just for client development purposes?
Right now the only choices are:
1) Build out virtual servers from scratch - takes lots of time and I'm not really infrastructure centric
2) Office 365 beta - tried to sign up but got a "we'll contact you someday" reply
What would be ideal
a) Is there anywhere to get a hosted account? Even if were a limited and/or test server.
b) Is there anywhere to get VM images fully configured for Lync client development? (I have the licenses necessary)
