Free Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V

So am I the last to know that Microsoft is offering Microsoft Server 2012 R2 Core running Hyper-V for free?  It has been a while since I did any Hyper-V work, but the new incarnation is pretty awesome!  The free version offers the same level of functionality as the full versions, just without the full OS running outside of it.  You get the same scaling, live migration, DR-redundancy, and clustering.  It really makes me want to build a server to try it on. ;-)
