Když jsem dnes (teda vlastně včera) procházel e-maily a to hloubkově, jako to dělám každou neděli (to znamená včetně složky spam), nemohl jsem si nevšimnout e-mailu od VMWare s titulkem “You are invited to participate in a Private VMware Workstation Technology Preview”. Čtu si takhle, o co vlastně jde, stahuji “nový” Workstation a říkám si “zase něco o čem budu moct blognout”. Ale než se to stáhne, tak si přečteme EULA-u, se kterou jsem musel před započtením stahování souhlasit. A hle! Ono to asi nebude zase tak žhavé, jak to vypadalo, protože jsem narazil na tyto pasáže:
