    Upgraded today from 7.10 to 8.04.

    Opposed to your experience, vmware-any-any-update was here not necessary with Kubuntu 32 bit 8.04 Hardy Heron. vmware workstation 6.5 beta, Build 91182 worked out of the box.

    As a regular 6.0 key owner I finding this 'timeouts' strange, too. I do understand that they - VMware - want to force testers to upgrade regulary. Otherwise everybody would only step up from time to time.

    In my opinion they should not do this enforcement. Especially for the normal customers owning the previous version and willing to test. I would prefer to be informed via mail if a new update is available (one line would be enough). The other way round is simply stupid.

    BTW: From the organizational standpoint some things seem not fully ok at the company. AFAIK until today they did not mention when 6.5 is planned to official release. Over weeks they had heavy trouble with their online forum. Messages disappeared strangely and reappeared anyhow some later. Postings had not been possible. Strange error messages to be shown if posting anything. Reaction times were slow. Answers sometime crude (ok I did not see 'man man', yet). For anybody like VMware potentially loosing ground/customers in an emerging market this should not be normality.

    Sorry if I do flame them here... but this time bombing is really boring.
