Adding more than one build agent in VSTS

Pricing for Build Agents in Visual Studio Team Services states that the first agent is free, subsequent on-premise agent will cost 15$/month. If you, like me, have a demo account, or you want to use more than one agent not simultaneously, you can register more than one agents, and then, from the administration panel, you can disable all agents except one.

If you need a third agent, as an example installed on a linux machine to demo linux build, you should disable the only enabled agent, then install and configure the agent on linux.
