If you don’t currently have a Windows 10 Pro license, you can get one from the Microsoft Store. If you just want to try out Windows 10 and UWP, use the free evaluation version of the VMs. The evaluation copies will expire after a pre-determined amount of time.

The Azure portal also has virtual machines you can spin up with the Windows Developer tooling installed as well!

If you have feedback on the VMs, please provide it over at the Windows Developer Feedback UserVoice site.
