I am still using VmWare from time to time for D-I related work. This
varies upon time and increases when releases are close, for the
l10n-related testing.

Some of these tests can be done with QEmu, but VmWare makes it easier
to do snapshots and such things which are kinda practical for demo
purposes or to interrupt a test to resume it later.

Up to now I was using a license I get for my paid work, but as this
license is no longer needed for me, I will not have it upgraded.

So, I am interested in getting one D-I related license.
