> 
> *       The only difference between Standard Edition and Pro 
> Edition is
> the inclusion of Virtual PC for Mac with Windows XP Pro.  
> Customers on SA are not entitled to this product, as it is 
> not a new version.
> 
> *       New customers are eligible to license either Pro or Standard
> through open and select.  If they are already licensed for 
> Standard, they should not license Pro, but instead license 
> Virtual PC.  This will give them the same products that are 
> included with Pro.
> 
> Some of the license products will not appear until the 
> October price lists.

> Here are some further details on what's available:
