    I noticed that a few people that installed the public beta has major bugs while others don't. Could it be that their download was corrupted or the OS didn't install correctly? The reason why I ask is because I'm on a Mid 2013 15' MacBook Pro Retina with the highest specs and it's running great. I haven't ran across any crashes or major bugs (maybe a few UI graphical bugs, but nothing major..) What about your experience? If you're having massive crashing and lockups have you tried to redownload it and install it again? Just my two cents..

    Welcome to modern day computing. There will always be bugs. There are too many people using too many different configuration with too many possible scenarios to account for everything in programming.

    Well that can be it too, but I think they should at least try to download it again and try to install it from scratch. It might help some people with major problems.

    The day after DP4 was released, I decided to make the jump and install. Since there weren't any full installers for DP4, I went the DP1, DP2, DP3, DP4 route and my system HATED it. My system was borked: I was having major Safari issues, half my apps disappeared, etc etc.

    Tried to restore from TM back to 10.9.4 and even then, my system did not like that. So I erased, clean installed 10.9.4 and then restored. System was back to the way it was.

    Of course, the next day, they announced PB1. Finally ran that (since it was a full installer) and Yosemite hasn't had any memorable issues for me at all – smooth as butter.

    Like was previously mentioned, too many variables/scenarios to take into account. These pre-release versions allow the OS to be tested in the wild in order to address many of the major issues before mass public exposure.

    different hardware and installed software will cause different bugs for different people. Its why you test on every machine possible.
