If you just want to try linux, you could use virtualbox or vmware workstation (You can get a 30 day free trial key for this)

Hyper-V

While it CAN be made to work (command-line only is easier than desktop) you are working with a product owned and provided by a company that has a history of supporting ONLY their OWN software and systems and (when they could) blocking all others.

Even if you get it to work, do you really trust that?
