Just out of curiosity, I tried to download Windows Media Player 11 with Wine. I watched anxiously as the files unzipped, hoping, wishing... that it would work. Just when it got to where it was ready to download to my computer a message appeared asking for authorization code.  It is the first time I have seen this in a program. I can understand in updates, but this is just a media player. Maybe MS is  trying to make it harder for those who have copies of an OS, instead of the original. In any case one more reason to switch to Linux.
