    I see so many people talking about it. How can I get a beta version before it's released next month?

    Thanks. Hope this isn't a dumb question because I seem to be the only one wondering where to download.

    I'm pretty much a newbie when it comes to Macs. I just notice I needed to be a developer to download. :cool:

    Guess I need someone to help me out here? :apple: :cool:

    Dont go looking for a pirated version or you could end up with a very messed up system and Apple will not help you. July isn't that far away, just wait on it like I am having to do.

    If you're pretty much new to Macs you don't want to mess with a prerelease version of OS X, pirated or not.

    Yeah, I thought about that which lead me to asking on this thread. Thanks for the advice.
