Take my money, damnit!

I've just spent that last 40 minutes trying to purchase VMWare Fusion through vmware.com.

I get to the end of the process, and receive this message:

"We are unable to process your order. Please verify your information and try again."

So, I go back, recheck information, try different permuations of my title, firstname, middle initial, last name. Argh. None of it works. ARRGH!

How hard is it to give me some relevant feedback so I know what is going wrong. ARRRHG AGAIN!

If you don't need the accelerated 3D, you could use VirtuabBox, it's open source and works well!

VMWare's use of the web has been lame for a long time. Every time you need to interact with them you seem to have to supply your personal information over again. I have stopped using their site, and do indeed use VirtualBox as an alternative.

Thanks for the tips!

I've spent 30 minutes downloading VirtualBox and installing an Ubuntu OS.

Now I can actually do some real work.

VMWare just lost a customer.
