I think that's the spirit of the EULA. But I have a Windows 95 license, does 
it count? :-)

Some where in the EULA posted by Jon, I read: "you need a Windows license and 
Windows running your system to be able to use this codecs." Maybe I'm wrong 
(IANAL) but read:

"... on all of your computers running validly licensed copies of the 
applicable OS..."

Hmmmmm.
