Today I received an email from VMWare describing a new promotion. Over three days, from 14 June to 16 June, VMWare will be conducting three-hour seminars in twenty cities in the US and Canada. According to the announcement, attendees will leave with a full copy of VMWare Workstation 5, a nearly $200 value. The exact words are: "Take what you learned today and implement it with your new copy of VMware Workstation 5 - no strings attached."
This is an excellent deal. I received a free copy of Windows NT 4 years ago at a Microsoft promotion. If anyone attends the seminar at the Dulles, VA Marriott, I will see you there.
