Get Free Interactive Shell Access to Linux / BSD and UNIX Like Operating Systems

From my mail bag:

Where can I get free interactive access to HP-UX or Linux distro or UNIX shell access?

You can simply grab and try out any Linux / BSD / Solaris Live CD. However, some time you cannot install and use particular UNIX like os. So, if you want to try the latest technologies over the Internet? Try HP TestDrive program:

This program allows you to testdrive some of the hottest hardware and operating systems available today. Have you ever wanted to try out HP's exciting 64-bit Integrity and PA-RISC technology? Get time on SMP x86 and Opteron ProLiant servers? Try out a Blade server. Try different Open Source operating systems such as FreeBSD, Suse, Redhat, Debian and other Linux distributions.

This program is perfect for students and new users to try out and learn basis of UNIX. You can also try and test your C/C++ programs using latest Intel compilers. It is intended for those users who want to sample the 32- and 64-bit servers running a variety of HP, UNIX, Linux and third-party operating systems and applications.

    Don’t forget that HP’s Test Drive program also includes HP-UX and OpenVMS boxes.

    If you want a free unix account to try linux without installing it on any of your machines you can try this service, you apply and typically get an account the same day. There are no fees and the system is fast and runs a recent kernel. You get C/C++/Python/etc for programming, unix email (with mutt/mail), your own web hosting space (up to 50MB) and alot more.
