A fling is a short-term thing, not a serious relationship but a fun one. Likewise, VMware Flings are software tools that are offered on the VMware Flings website that are intended to be played with and explored. Though Flings might not become part of any future VMware product offering and are not supported, many VMware customers find them incredibly useful. It also doesn’t hurt that they’re free.
This contest runs from August 27th through October 31st 2012, and, yes, you’re allowed to submit multiple ideas. Although I am not eligible, I did not already enter one… and I am hoping all of you will do the same. So go register your ideas and win that free VMworld 2013 pass, but again maybe the best price is seeing your idea being developed and turn in to a fling, feature or product!
