I am just starting with SharePoint and have read in various articles that there was an official SharePoint 2010 virtual machine available from Microsoft. This answer on SharePoint StackExchange points to this link:
But the link is now dead. I was able to find other third party virtual machines like the one mentioned in this blog article, but none from Microsoft.
Are there any SharePoint virtual machines available from Microsoft? Are there any other sites on which the SharePoint 2010 VM, or for that matter any version, from Microsoft is still available? Has Microsoft discontinued providing VMs for SharePoint?
