Yes, I see that actually.

I spun up two Windows 2008 Server VMs last night on AWS with Prime95 running. I won't go more than two.

I think actually I will be charged a few dollars a month because the combined hours per month goes past their limit of 750 by almost double.

One thing I have to find out more about is instance termination. Hopefully both will stay up.

Late note: I saw the thread about using AWS and it suggests using Linux is MUCH cheaper (once I have to start paying). I may go that route but I kind of like getting the hands-on experience with Windows Server. I can't afford to buy it.
