Heh nice timing.
I saw something about student pricing on their web site and emailed the addy
as Mrs. Hedemark still has valid student ID. $300 for that is highway
robbery. As we both pointed out, who needs a virtual machine for $300 when
you could buy a real one at that price and have it run faster.
Any interest from the SC in trying to negotiate a LUG deal with these guys
at more reasonable pricing???
