Note that it is even valid for "upgrading" from quite ancient versions.
I was happy enough with my copy of VMWare Fusion 2, seeing no particular
need to upgrade. When I first saw that $9.99 price, I decided that now
was the time to go buy the upgrade anyway.
But then I noticed that the same price applied to "upgrading" from, in
particular, my old copy of Parallels 2 (or even 1). I'm not currently
running Parallels, and I doubt I even could as I suspect it won't run on
Snow Leopard, which is what all of my Intel Macs are running. But it
still counted as legit for purposes of the current VMWare promotion.
So I bought it as an upgrade from my old, unused version of Parallels.
The advantage is that leaves me with 2 perfectly legit licenses for
useably recent versions of VMWare - the VMWare 2 license that I
previously had, plus the new VMWare 3 one I got from the upgrade. So I
can put one on a second machine (perhaps my wife's iMac, or my laptop)
if a reason to do so comes up.
