VMware has an open tech preview of the latest version of Fusion for the Mac. As this is a retail product it's an open TechPreview that anyone can download and play with, something that is unusual for VMware. Here’s the blurb!
The VMware Fusion Team is excited to invite you to participate in the VMware Fusion Technology Preview 2012 program. With the recent availability of Windows 8 Consumer Preview, OS X Mountain Lion Developer Preview and Ubuntu 12.04 Beta (Precise Pangolin), we thought it was the perfect time to release a technology preview to get your feedback on what may appear in future releases of VMware Fusion.
