I've always admired the approach http://paint.net (a retailer) took to this
... they are kind enough to provide a link to the software which earns a
great deal of "brownie" points in my books as a business / organization to
work with, especially since http://getpaint.net (the Paint.net software
developer) does not reciprocate.

What's even nicer ... http://paint.net uses WordPress. Talk about coming
full circle.
