I don't think these Personal Learning editions are worth much. The info link above is dead, but this is from a website I came across:

"As with the previous version, there are a number of restrictions to Maya PLE: it displays a watermark on images, uses a special non-commercial file format, does not ship with the Maya API and cannot be used with standard plug-ins."

Thanks for adding Maya PLE 6, FRworld. But I believe this version should deserve its own page. Right ?
