Hi everybody, before I start: I'll mabye get flamed for my following question by the real developers in this forum - so please let me assure you: It only is an honest question. I just ask because I really wanna know. I didn't make up my mind already, that's why I'd appreciate your comment. Here we go: As an Apple user and tech nerd, I'm always interested in trying out the latest software for Mac and iOS devices. Lion OSX currently is in the main focus, of course, However, I am NOT a developer or something like that. After Apples release of the first Lion build I now ask myself (once again): Should/Could I sign up to the Apple developer program to have the chance to try out new Apple software before release date? I think I would be willing to pay 99 dollars a year for this. I KNOW of course that these builds are software in an early stadium so I DON'T expect full working or even perfect software without bugs and I WON'T blame anyone if something works wrong cause I know that this is pre-released software. However, my decision would be easier if there comes an easy option with the pre-release-build to revert all changes and recreate the system like it was before (I think I've heard about this option in the Developer builds before - is this possible?) Otherwise, I could always reinstall the system again with my Time Machine backup, of course - which would make me a bit less ambitious to try out the pre-releases, but I would still think about it ... So, what you do think? Would you support my thoughts about signing up as an developer under these circumstances (see above) or woud your answer be the standard "Don't do it, it's only for real Developers and too complicated/dangerous ..." (which I would accept and understand - again: I haven't ignorantly made my mind already, that's why I ask. I even never downloaded beta software from torrent sites or something like that ...) Thanks in advance for your time and help.
