That definitely was possible under the old deal.  You could go through the MSDN site and download
an iso for various versions of Windows and run it under VirtualBox.  The MSDN site also would
furnish a license key that you could use to activate the machine.

I haven't yet gone through this new process to see if anything has changed in the benefits.

Thanks Chris!

I did avail of the offer a few months ago, and wasn't able to figure out if a windows license
was also available. I want to run windows inside a virtual machine on my Linux laptop, for
the rare cases that there are patches that may affect that. Any clue if that is possible?

A few months ago, we learned that the offer for ASF committers to get an MSDN license had
gone away.  I'm happy to report that as of a few weeks ago, that offer is back in place. 
For more details, committers can check out https://svn.apache.org/repos/private/committers
and read donated-licenses/msdn.txt.
