$10 Parallels to VM Ware 3.1 Upgrade

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...
VMware Fusion: Run Windows 7 and Chrome OS on Mac for Desktop VirtualizationNever judge a man, untill you have walked a mile in his shoes...
That way you'll be a mile away from him, and you'll have his shoes.

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.

Thanks for the tip, just upgraded Fusion 2.x for the $9.99.
