VMware Providing Academic Discounts

One way to help spread the word about virtualization is by going after the academic market.  VMware is now doing just that, offering academic discounts to current students, prospective university students, or academic faculty and staff.  The virtualization giant is making it easier than ever to purchase VMware Workstation or VMware Fusion at an academic discount.  You can save up to 50% on selected VMware products through this academic store.
