Btw, I was just wondering is VMware Mac OS X compatible? I've got a spare copy of WinXP Home lying around so if it works that would be a great use for it. What does succinct mean?

Wow, this is pretty cool. And let me get this straight, you're going to pick one out of 100,000 users or so? Hmmm, odds are still a lot better than the lottery at least .

So, what is new in VMWare 4.5? I can't see anything on their site, already own 4.0 and am interested in what is new. Anybody?

Actually, no. Isnt there only like 1000 things in the HCL? Maybe less? It is pretty good odds. Plus you need a review.

Pauli is correct, as of now your odds are very good. Still some time to get one of each in though!

Ooo Ooo. Jeremy, while your here.

I did a review of fedora, but I do not get a mark in my review counter because it wasnt a new product. Is it going to check a review for linux or a new product submitted for linux in the reviews section?

When you look at the info under your name in a forum post you need to have a non-zero number for "Posts", "HCL Entries" and "Reviews" to be eligible.

That means I have to enter a new product into the review section, correct? There are not too many linux products which are NOT enetered into the review section? Does this not give a VERY small number of people a chance to win?

You can enter any Linux distro or any Linux related book (that isn't already there). I'd say at this point we really haven't even scratched the surface.

my review

Does this mean that the review I just did for Debian Woody 3.0 R2 doesn't count? If so I'm not to happy about that.

Craigwd, sure it counts in that now anyone who comes to LQ will benefit from it. If you mean are you eligible for the contest now, the answer is no. You need to enter one new product. The good news is you still have plenty of time.

Correct, if you have non-zero numbers for the three items quoted above you are eligible. If you see any zeros you are not.
