I just had another look after reading a report in the Aussie newspapers with
a link to it.

The main page is:

If I click on the red star with "Try it now", I get sent to the following

This page says:

"This download is available to customers running genuine Microsoft Windows.
Please click Continue to begin Windows validation."

It also says:

"This download is available running genuine Microsoft Windows. Click Continue
in the Validation Recommended section above to begin the short validation
process. Once validated, you will be returned to this page with specific
instructions for obtaining the download."

I can't see any other links that get around this validation requirement.
