    Hi there,

    Been a mac owner since July and thoroughly enjoying it. I've been using VMware Fusion 2 Beta and this expired today so I thought I'd pop out and buy a copy. However the UK store I went into today only had version 1.

    So my question is - does anybody know when the stores in the UK will be getting stock of the new version?

    (I know I can buy it from the VMware website but as it's the same price as retail I'd rather have the box and cd to stick on the shelf :))

    Cheers,
    Si

    If you have VM ware 1.(x) you can upgrade to 2.0 free of charge. So you can either wait and but a new copy or get an old copy, install it and update it. I Had 1.0 and upgraded to 2.0 just recently, I like it lot :D

    Cheers for that. I decided to get version 1 in the end. Decided not to bother using the CD so just downloaded version 2.0 and installed it over the beta - all went well and then I just used the licence key on the back of the CD and that was it all working happily with version 2.0 :)

    Si
