I saw this on weekend too, but didnt try.. maybe when installing u need a key or something to activate.. anyone?!
Because, if u go on custumize page, u ll see Creative Integrated .... ($25)..
so why free download at drivers page, and charge at custumize page.. confused, ah?!
windows activation doesn't tie the cd key to a single computer. they say it's only allowed to be installed on one machine, but there is nothing to stop you from installing it on multiple computers. maybe if you have 100 copies of the same windows would they turn them all off, but if it's just on two or three machines, microsoft will 99% do nothing.
