    Free, as long as you fork over your credit card information. No thanks.

    Tried to create account twice, each time led to the original page. No download possible.

  3. Yeah. The site is experiencing really heavy traffic so some pages aren't loading. I know some people have been successful, but I'm not one of them yet. Even tried different browsers. I'm going to wait a couple hours for traffic to die down then try again.


  4. I think the credit card thing is part of the site traffic issue. Because on one page it says balance is $0.00 with discount applied, then asks for credit card on next page.  I'm waiting until later to finish the checkout.
