Hmmm... seems like they tightened up their evaluation licenses for 2.0 -
I know that you can get an eval license for 2.0 if you had a 1.x eval
license before, but obviously you can only get one 2.0 eval license.
At least *I* cannot get a new 2.0 eval license - bummer.

But OTOH they *seem* to check the the system date you started the vmware
executable, not the current time when the virtual machine boots... good to
know that Linux runs rock-solid for months (if there weren't these
annoying montlhy emergency power supply tests here at Uni, I could get an
uptime of much more than 31 days...)
