Nutshell: if you have any Parallels license key from v1 through v5, VMWare will let you buy their latest greatest version of VMWare Fusion for Mac v3.1 for $10.

Fine print: You need to include your Parallels license code when you fill out the request for the promotion. If it's a bunk key, they will back-charge you the full new purchase price (so no using someone else's Parallels code 20 times for 20 upgrades).

I'm a big open software proponent, but with all the craziness going on at Sun/Oracle these days I decided I didn't have confidence in Virtual Box being cared for and fed properly. For a whopping $10, the upgrade to VMWare from my old Parallels 3.0 key seemed like a good choice. Have fun...

You can also upgrade from any previous version of Fusion to Fusion 3.1.1 for $9.99. I was just there and used my license # from Fusion 1.1.1 to make the purchase.

Thanks for posting.

Sounds tempting! I currently use Parallels...could be an inexpensive way to give VMware Fusion a try.

Of course the VMware Fusion demo is free.
