You need Windows Genuine Advantage for WHAT?!?

So I wanted to use BlackBox.dll (or at least a personalized implementation thereof) to start bringing PhotoHub into a closer approximation to a real, dogfoodable, working application.

Want to know what I found out? To get the latest version of the Platform SDK, you need to have Windows Genuine Advantage installed to get it.

And this is the company that put out the “Developers Developers Developers” video? I’ve got a long entry about Microsoft’s generally successful efforts to kill their own platform. I should finish it up and post it.
