It's worth noting that if you have student status (or someone in your household) you can get VMWARE Workstation for the price of the upgrade. Still not cheap but considerably cheaper.

Thanks for the info Carol but I don't know of any students...The problem is the rate of exchange is R6.60 to the $1.00 Oh yes of course there is those bank charges...From here it'll cost me about R1500.00 that's for the electronic download...It would be a lot easier for me to send someone in the U.S.A.  a money gram and purchase the electronic download...Even then it's still expensive...Most of the software I purchase is from the States...

Note that a review is not of a single program but of a category of programs.
It's a lot of work and requires some discipline and attention to detail - definitely not something that everyone is cut out for
(see zaine's review of archive tools for an example of how big these reviews can get: https://www.donation...hiveTools/index.html)

But we are very much in need of some good objective reviewers and we try to make sure they are well taken care of in terms of software, etc.
