    How do you change the file system to the new one that was included with this operating system?

    Didn't they say it won't be ready until January?

    Yep. To quote The Zombies, "please don't bother trying to find her... she's not there".

    You can't. It's beta right now. Can't be used as a boot drive.

    Even when they release it, I will wait.

    The file system is a very critical part of the system and no beta can preempt a full release with millions as a guinea pig.

    It's hidden away in a place where you can only access it via Terminal. If you don't feel comfortable formatting drives from the command line, you should not be using the new APS file system. It's hidden deep for a good reason, and you will likely lose your data when the final version is released next year. This is meant for developers only. If you're somebody who just likes new and shiny things for the sake of being an early user, don't do it. This isn't for you.
