It fits completely with a low-end product they're giving away as a 
come-on for their more expensive supported products.  If the come-on 
doesn't function, it's not going to win them *any* converts from the 
free-as-in-free VM systems.  That seems counterproductive to me, so no, 
I don't believe that explains why we haven't seen a bug fix release in 8 

If they wish to withdraw all support for it, I'd expect it to just 
disappear from their site.
