40% discount off VMware Fusion or Workstation

If you want to buy VMware Fusion 2 or Workstation 6.5 but don't qualify
for academic pricing then VMware are offering 40% off (almost as good as
academic pricing) until the end of today though not sure which timezone.

Use DESKTOPSALE as the promo code.

HTH.

This is a good price, grabbed a 5 pack of Workstation for a bit over
$100 each.

Thanks!

I got VMWare Fusion a couple of years ago before I even owned a Mac <g> - I
was already contemplating it, and VMWare was having a promo on it because
Fusion was new. I got it for $29.99! It's a really nice version of VMWare,
and if you have a Mac and don't already have an emulator, go grab it while
you can.

That said, when I get back from holiday I have to figure out how to put
bootcamp on the kids' Mac - James can't play Oblivion in VMWare, and he's
driving his only PC using sibling nuts to use her computer 🙂

Bootcamp is really just a partition manager and a driver set. Just run
the app, slide the bar to how much disk to dedicate to the 'windows'
partition and wait. Then boot off the windows install media and install
like normal.

Its easy.

I have found however, the drivers from Snow Leopard hate ZCM and won't
install if ZCM is there first.

Although I really hate to dedicate too much to the Windows partition, it's
probably a lot easier to do that and then put an external drive on the iMac
for the Mac stuff. I can at least do a symlink to the /Users directories
from the Mac to the external drive and make it as big as they need!

Not that they are the same, but - www.quabana.com

Use that, it is free. I am guessing it does most of what you need on a
workstaion.
