I google and find this: http://cheapsoftwareking....ad-version_p478.html#show

But I wonder whether it is safe to purchase from them.
Is there anyway I can verify before buy, to ensure I am buying a genuine license of VmWare Workstation 8?

Have anyone here bought anything from that site? What is your opinion?

I would not buy from them. The text on that page is copied from vmware site, according to alexa, they have negligible traffic and the domain is registered on Bahamas.

Anyway, as I software author, I will not allow my software to be sold at permanent discount by a unknown web site and I doubt vmware will, but you can always email them.

Agreed.  I steer far clear of sites such as these.  tslim, did you notice the pricing?  Their site states the retail price is $100.00 and the discount price is $199.00 but you can buy it for $119.00.  WTF?   huh

I get a better deal there, $199 discounted to $119 smiley



I think you only need to look at the prices for Windows 7 on the site to realise it's a bit dodgy since at those prices they're probably the usual MSDN keys palmed off with a copied DVD.

I email them and they promise they are selling a genuine license...

Anyway, I am currently evaluating VmWare 8, if I really want to buy it, I will get VmWare personnel to verify that offer.

My best wish is when I wake up tomorrow, I find a VmWare WS 8 discount coupon here, only for donationcoder members ...  tongue

I think that's the smartest thing to do.

I'm also sure they'll tell you it's a bogus offer.

Good luck. smiley
