In order to make it easier to evaluate Reason, we have created a virtual machine with a pre-configured version of Reason 4 Beta 4.
We hope this method of distributing Reason will make it easier for those who would like to test out Reason without taking the time to install the package on existing hardware.

About the virtual machine
The virtual machine is running Ubuntu Linux, and is configured with a self-signed certificate. Firefox is configured with a custom home page that will redirect to the Reason login page. To work properly, the virtual machine needs to be able to obtain an IP address via DHCP.
The virtual machine should only be used for testing and development purposes.
Update July 25th, 2007: We've identified a bug in the events feature of Reason that prevents events from being saved in the vmware image. We are working on a fix -- request a copy now to be sent a link when the fix is in place.
