We are looking to create a new SQL box, and there is also a desire by management to migrate from 2008 to 2012 SQL Server when they do it. Anybody know Microsoft's policy on evaluation before purchasing licenses (i.e. before they by licensing for 2012 on the box they want to make sure upgrading doesn't break their existing system)?

Evaluation Edition is equivalent to Enterprise Edition in terms of functionality and affords 180 days of use. For all licensing compliance information though, never accept the guidance of someone on a public forum...consult Microsoft or a certified reselller directly.
