Yikes. The broken apps thread all reads pretty nasty for beta, particularly all the Apple apps I just read have issues like Time Machine? I was interested in trying this but I think I will leave it to those braver than myself. It's just my home iMac but still, there are apps I use often that I don't want to be without, etc. In fairness, I really should not consider using beta as such anyway and I haven't. I've been following it here instead. Is it me? Are OS X beta releases this bug laden typically? It seems to me like some of this stuff really ought to have been caught and squashed internally before beta releases but maybe my expectations are too high and Apple doesn't operate the way I would expect them to. I also still question annual updates and wonder if this would happen on a longer development schedule. I would hope not. I guess that last point doesn't matter. It is what it is.
