    I know this is a long shot but is there anyway for non developers to try the latest build for 10.6.4?

    Various download sites have it. Anyway, it's just a maintenance update so there is nothing to wait for

    I have no idea why anyone would want to do that. You're just setting yourself up for a crashed system by using a relatively untested OS. It's not like there will be any new features either.

    I hear you guys on the "its just maintenance anyway" thing but AFAIK there is improved openGL drivers and improved performance with Source games...correct me if I'm wrong.


    Also one more important question, say I do install the latest build, hypothetically of course, would I be able to simply install the stable RTM 10.6.4? or will I require a clean install?

    It's most likely released very soon anyway so don't bother messing with betas.

    First off, you want to use pirated software. Members of this forum frown on that. Moral and legal issues aside, development versions of MacOS X are intended for developers. It is counterproductive for regular users to install them. Get this: You cannot use Software Update to update the development version of MacOS X to the release version. If you install the development version of the OS, then you must then reinstall an older version of the OS so that you can update to the release version MacOS X 10.6.4.
