I should have read the press release more closely:
New software incentives, valued at more than $450 (U.S.), will be added
for users of genuine Windows software who take part in the program,
* Microsoft Photo Story 3 for Windows
* Winter Fun Pack 2004
* Fifty percent off a selection of MSN® Games by Zone.com
* Six-month trial of Microsoft Office OneNote® 2003
* Fifty percent off hosted Windows SharePoint® Services
* Fifty percent off Microsoft List Builder service
* Thirty percent off the new Microsoft Office Outlook® Live
It appears that Photo Story is *only* available if you validate, it's
not optional in this case.
If you click "Download Photo Story 3" here you are told to validate:
While this app is given away for free, presumably it's still illegal
product tying as Photo Story *could* run on Wine, but due to this block
Wine users are being prevented from downloading it.
