I'm not sure Microsoft issue "trial" versions of their desktop OS software. You may be thinking of the pre-release beta versions, which are pulled from the site well before the official launch.

by searching google...
Clicking on the link on the page takes you to here;
click here
where it says;
"The 90-day Trial is offered for a limited time and in limited quantity. The download will be available through March 31, 2010, while supplies last."

I guess they've run out of supplies then!!!
