A year ago I had 30-day trial for Office 365 (Sharepoint Online 2010). Everything worked fine from my Windows XP SP3 (x86. 32-bit) for development from Infopath Developer and Sharepoint Designer against Sharepoint Online which om Sharepoint Server 2010 at that time.
Recently I was trying (at different days) to subscribe for another trial but after configuring my trial email@example.com account I could not create a Sharepoint site collection from it (_https://zzzz.microsoftOnline.com) repeating to get:
- "That didn't work We're sorry, but firstname.lastname@example.org can't be found in the yyy-admin.sharepoint.com directory. Please try again later, while we try to automatically fix this for you"
"Sorry, but your configuration is not supported
Please re-start your session on a Windows 7 - Windows Server 2008 R2 machine using Internet Explorer 9
download Internet Explorer here"
I've uses Internet Explorer 7 and latest versions of Google Chrome, Moozilla Firefox, Opera. It is known that it is impossible to install IE9 on Windows XP
I understood that the core problem is currently Sharepoint Online is on Sharepoint Server 2013 which is impossible to administer and develop from Windows XP as it was, without problems in case of Sharepoint 2010 Online, just a half year ago.
I tried to search for a free trial of Sharepoint, specifically 2010, Online. Found and subscribed at http://www.mosexperts.com/free-trial.htm but could not get anywhere getting:
- "The subscription in your quote is no longer available.

- "Servers busy. Try again later. Internal services error occured. Please try again later"
Do I have any chances of trying Sharepoint Online from Windows XP SP3?
Are there Sharepoint 2010 Online?
What are they?
