I copied and pasted this blurb from Thom's web page. Hope he will not consider this an inappropriate copying of his material, but I have been quite careful to give the credit where it belongs. "Free Capture Upgrade...for Some Aug 3--NikonUSA has announced that those that purchased a copy of Capture NX from an authorized source in the period May 1 through December 31, 2008, are entitled to receive a free update to Capture NX2. You need to to call 800-645-6689 with your license key and provide proof of purchase" Look here to read the blurb directly from his site: http://www.bythom.com/ I am getting offline now to see the purchase date for my copy of NX. It is gonna be close!
