    I was just wondering how the people were chosen to test the beta versions of Tiger.

    I think they're developers.

    developers are the ones who basically do the testing for the OS, ADC members and whatnot

    I don't think many (if any) were chosen. Most paid $500 to get it early. Anyone who wanted to get it early was able to. Most people didn't get it early because they knew that they were able to get it for a lot less (and fully functioning) if they waited for it to be publicly released. ;)

    O ok. Where did you pay this $500. I never heard anything about it. Does it have to do with ADC. (What's that by the way)

    O ok thanks everyone for clarifying. So basically you over pay to get Tiger early.

    Well, there are some people who pay the $500 only to get Tiger early. However, the idea is that you pay $500 because you need Tiger early, so that you can develop software for Tiger.
