    No, you will have to buy a license for Windows. Apple supplies the tools, you supply the OS.

    Boot Camp is already 'free'. It's included with Mac OS X.

    You just need to purchase a license for Windows, which you already knew you had to do.

    For a while you can go by with the Test versions of Windows.
    Install the RP it will work for at a while and is legal to use. Works well and stable enough.

    The public RC versions usually stop working a couple month after the final release of the new Windows.
    Windows 7 RC could be used for almost a year.
