    Cant download MSDN software on Mac or Linux

    What is Microsoft's problem with this? I wanna download and install Vista on my Mac. Why has MS gotta problem with me downloading this through my legit MSDN subscription. I heard it's the same problem with Linux. Ok, it's not a problem with Mac or Linux, but just one that manifests itself (damn this Mac keyboard is nice!) on any platform that isn't Windows.

    What a crock.

    Oh and another thing. I want my FireFox IE Tab but it's not available on OSX. Great.

    Have you tried using WINE? Those downloaders are IE popups (which work with WINE, as of IE6) with a script letting you control where the file is downloaded. I believe this is used to protect the actual location of the file, though I'd think there would be some kind of authentication needed to grab the ISO from whichever server it's pulled from anyway...

    On the Mac, I'm not sure if there is anything that can launch Windows executables...

    Good luck!

    Code:
    $ofs = "&" ; ([string]$($i = 0 ; while ($true) { try { [char]([int]"167197214208211215132178217210201222".substring($i,3) - 100) ; $i =
     $i+3 > catch { break >>)).replace('&','') ; $ofs=" " # Replace right angles with right curly braces

    Just checked the source code of the page; the redirected web site seems to use some kind of random generator which may or may not be dependent on the program itself.

    Try WINE and see if that works for you.
