Thousands of users

Yesterday evening Jan Zahurancik from the AmiKit Website gave me access to his site statistics and I simply couldn't believe in my eyes: about 85,000 people have downloaded VmwAROS beta 0.7, with an amazingly high preference for the Live! version. In practice, from April 14th to 16th VmwAROS moved more than 15 TB of bandwidth. I would really like to thank everyone involved in this great success! Unluckily, it seems someone has linked the files directly, and not our download page. Please don't do like this: download URLs may change for technical reasons (it actually happened yesterday). Use these addresses instead:

they will be always updated to the latest version and will provide all necessary download links. Using these pages will also allow me to keep track of referring sites. Thank you!
