I just received an email from the VMWare support team that they have made the first Release Candidate for VMWare 3.0 available for download and testing. Heres what they had to say:
Thank you for participating in the Beta program for VMware Workstation 3.0. In order to unlock this software, you'll need to register to receive a Beta serial number, if you haven't already.
Note: any previous serial numbers you may have, for example your serial number or license from Workstation 2.x, will not work with Workstation 3.0 Beta.
This is BETA software!, please use caution when installing it on your system
