If you act fast, you might be able to get your hands on a free copy of Cluster Server 2003.

While the "bits" are already available to MSDN subscribers, and IT pros can download a time-limited demo at http://microsoft.com/hpc, Microsoft evangelist Volker Will announced today on his blog that he's giving away 20 not-for-resale copies of the server.

To get one, you must go to http://www.windowshpc.net/, register as a community member, then e-mail Will (volker.will(at)microsoft.com) your registration name.

At of press time (3:12 p.m. PST, Tuesday), Will had not yet posted that the copies were given away, so those who reply quickly may still have a chance to receive one.
