In case you're wondering what the difference between a VMware and Virtual Machine User Group is (in their own words):
VMware User Group
The VMware User Group (VMUG) is an independent, global, customer-led organization, created to maximize members’ use of VMware and partner solutions through knowledge sharing, training, collaboration, and events.
Virtual Machine User Group
We are an association of persons with a vested interest in the successful deployment of virtual infrastructure and their associated technologies. The committee are all volunteers and are directly employed to manage and design virtual infrastructure in their organisations.
