    Yosemite Beta releases in a few hours!

    When betas come out, are they usually safe to install over your current OS X or still very buggy?

    I have no experience with betas myself but based on what I've read, it's best to partition your drive and install Yosemite on a separate partition than your productivity system, on another Mac that isn't crucial, or on a bootable external hard drive.

    It's a beta so it will have bugs.

    Ah, sucks. When you partition, it doesnt carry over all your apps/files so you're constantly customizing your system.

    Guess I have to wait until October... arghhhh!

    Well, you could clone your existing partition to a new one using an app like Super Duper and then upgrade that to Yosemite, in theory it would work. That's what I'm going to do...

    What Super Duper does is create a bootable backup of your system to another hard drive/partition. So you could boot from the backup and upgrade it to Yosemite.

    I have no idea how to disable emails, lol I just joined today...

    I'm guessing they will send out emails around 10 AM PST, the time they release new betas...so more like 15.5 hours.
