I want to try Sharepoint 2013 standard (not Foundation).

So I downloaded it and now it asks me Enter your product key:

Where can I receive this product key for trial?

I thought it was the Register for evaluation step at but after I click on the GET STARTED NOW button I am only taken to a download page, no product key anywhere.

Be careful that if you wan to test SharePoint Standard you'll need a purchased key as currently, Microsoft is only providing an Enterprise trial key (which is NQTMW-K63MQ-39G6H-B2CH9-FRDWJ) and no standard trial key. Happy testing !
