Try looking into WINE, I believe it is an emulator that you can run windows apps off of.

Oh come on. You mean to tell me it's not worth $15.00 to you to get a subscription?

Go get the CVS version if you really want it. It's free (but I'm pretty sure you don't get the DirectX stuff, since it's commercial).

I don't think there's any restriction on how old you have to be... if there is, maybe you could get your parent/guardian to sign up for you?

I doubt that anyone here is going to help you get a copy illegally.
