Question Fedora 15/Gnome 3 as guest on VMWare Workstation 8?

Gnome 3 did not work under VMWare Workstation 7.1 because of lack of 3D support.

Do any of you know if it works now on Workstation 8?

If it matters, I specifically want to know about Windows 7 x64 Host running Fedora 15 x64 as a Guest OS.

Thanks for any help!

Re: Fedora 15/Gnome 3 as guest on VMWare Workstation 8?

The download for a 30-day trial of VMWare Workstation 8 is not that big. I would download it and try it myself, but I am currently heavily invested in VMs running under Workstation 7.1. I don't want to risk doing an upgrade, finding out it doesn't work, and then having to either cough up $99 to keep WS8 or hope that downgrading back to 7.1 works. And I don't have a second computer right now to try it on.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Just for the record, somebody on the VMWare forums responded and said he tried running VMWare Workstation 8 on top of Windows 7 64-bit and then loading up FC15 32-bit - and Gnome would only come up in Fallback Mode.
