Link doesn't work

EDIT .... does it work now?

Worked for me - but then MS wanted me to install Silverlight to view the content - thanks but no thanks.

MS are still pushing this (silverlight) dead horse.

The link works now but since I'd never use most of the things they probably want feedback on the most, I see no use in trying it out. Plus I don't want to mess up my system. Maybe I'll try it in a separate partition on my Win 7 laptop, if that's possible.

No Silverlight here and the content/video was watchable for me.

You may be ducking under the radar using IE11 - using firefox it is asking to install silverlight (no way).

Possibly :-\ I get offered Silverlight via windows update but never accept it so I'm not sure of IE's functionality without it being prior installed.

I also never see popups for anything telling me I need some other software to view something...I think Adguard automatically blocks all that stuff for me.

I understand DavidR. In my case, still running XP and IE 8 with the last Silverlight for XP and IE 8, I have no problems visiting MS, but if I go there with FF, MS always says I have to install Silverlight and the version is totally different than the one I got.
