Download:

You can download it from Dotnetnuke website or using following download links.

I normally use Source Code Package as it gives me easy way & complete flexibility to change code. But in general you want to start with Install Package (shared hosting) or Microsoft Web Platform Installer (local machine or dedicated server). You will still able to change Skin related code whichever version you use. 

 

Microsoft Web Platform Installer

Easy to install Microsoft Web Platform Installer Wizard
Install Package

Contains only the files needed for a run-time deployment to a web server. Download the Install Package if you want to deploy a live site to a web server with the minimum required files.

Upgrade Package

Contains only the files needed for upgrading an existing installation (does not include module packages). Download the Upgrade Package if you want to upgrade an existing installation to a newer version.

Source Code Package Contains everything including full application source code. Download the Source Package if you are a web developer interested in the DotNetNuke web application framework source code.
Visual Studio Starter Kit This MSI installs Visual Studio Templates for creating websites, modules and skins in Visual Studio. Download the Starter Kit if you are a web developer interested in creating skins or modules for the DotNetNuke web application framework using Visual Studio.

For larger organization who are using Dotnetnuke for business-critical application should also consider buying Professional, Elite and Elite Premier Editions. Elite and Elite Premier Editions is additional support on top of DotNetNuke Professional Edition codebase.
