I think I can claim a first for the UK, we have a Microsoft Virtualization User Group.  I'll wait and see if anyone from another Microsoft subsidiary corrects me and says their has been running for years. When we recording our Podcast, Jonathan told me that there is a well established VMware user group. 

Their web site has just gone live and they are advertising their inaugural meeting , which  will be at the Microsoft office in London (not Reading, London) on the evening of September 24th. You can register on the site, or by mail. I'm hoping to make the meeting available through live meeting for those who can't attend in person - if that sounds like something you'd want please use the registration process to let us know.

Many congratulations to Patrick and Mathew for getting this up and running.
