Microsoft is releasing its Developer Editions of SQL Server 2014 and 2016 for free!
Developer Edition is the same as the Enterprise Edition but it is licensed for development and testing purposes only.
The Developer license for the previous versions (2008 R2, 2012) used to go for about $50 and up. Another option was to download the fully functional edition valid for 180-days and later buy a licence.
