Well logged into my Developer account, there is only 12D65 still listed on mine, not 12D68.

They're adding support for the 1:1 aspect displays shown in the graphic.

Why is it ridiculous ?

10.9 will be released when Apple wants to release it.

Eleven builds? Did this ever happen before?

Wouldn't it be nice if they manage this to happen with the first release?

Once I believe. This is now tied with the highest build number ever for a update. What I think is happening is that Apple got behind in developing 10.8.3 and now they are merging what would have been the 10.8.4 release into 10.8.3 for the newer hardware coming out soon. But I am unsure of anything at this point.

Not true. I've semi-bricked a motherboard using beta drivers (not on a mac). And some people are bricking samsung laptops just by using linux.

How do you semi brick a motherboard? It is either bricked or working. There is no kind of pregnant.

You can screw the nvram. And it won't turn on until you get the nvram externally erased.

It's not possible to brick your Mac using beta software. The only way I see you could potentially brick your Mac is by modifying the Firmware, or If your system shuts down while updating Firmware.

On the PC side It's also very similar, your motherboard is bricked If your BIOS chip dies or If you modify the BIOS, even then you can replace the BIOS chipset and your set..

Installing Beta version of OSX will do nothing, the worst that can happen is you'll loose your files, same goes for a PC running Windows. You'd think if running beta software had the potential to brick PC's or Mac's, then Microsoft would not have made the Windows 8 Beta available to consumers :P

< 10.8.3 has so many bugs. That is the answer.

Admit it, you were too embarrassed to ask "Is Safari snappier?".

I know this is probably forbidden to say, but this type of update schedule is one thing that makes me miss the update format of Windows / Linux distros... It's been months since my OS was updated. With other OSes, you can at least hope for speedier incremental bug fixes. Right now there could be one single issue that is putting an entire plethora of bugfixes on hold. Is there some sort of benefit to this process that I don't quite understand?

Please enlighten me on what makes sense in this post ?

All I said was Apple would release 10.9 when Apple wants to.

That's pretty simple and a very understandable statement.

But honestly I don't see how Macs can suffer from this issue, you are after all installing a version of OSX that is designed for your hardware & Mac, despite the fact that it may be beta software.

Not trying to be smart ass, just that I build PC's, overclock them, modify GPU BIOS and all that jazz, and I have never ever heard of an instance where a PC was bricked by installing a Beta version of an Operating System. I've even installed Mac OS, Ubuntu, Gnome on PC's and never had an issue.
