    I'm pretty comfortable with iOS but still kinda noobish with Mac OS.

    I have DP4 installed on my MBP. Will I just be riding updates from the Mac Appstore until final version of Yosemite or do I need to do something different?

    I never said I was a developer. I asked a simple question.

    How are beta updates of Mac OS X handled? iOS is either OTA or you download the firmware and update it through iTunes.

    Yes. That's it.
    And if the GM will be the same build as the public release you can update to 10.10.1 and so on :)

    Then you admit to piracy and downloading illegal copies of apple products.

    Not necessarily he/she could have paid the $99 to gain access to the developer preview.

    Do you know what it takes to be in Apple's developer program? $99.00

    It's that easy.

    Been meaning to ask this for a while and this thread just triggered my memory ;).......been running DP1 - DP4 but also submitted request for public beta

    Wonder if I can load the public beta over the DP version or if not necessary since features will be identical?

    We will need to see your Developer Badge before we can answer that question ;)

    LOL.....thats the other interesting note, while I am a registered iOS developer, I went to register as well for OS X but the system gave me a redemption code for DP
    Now when i go to "about this mac" it shows v10.10 of course but does not show me a build #
    So I'm not 100% convinced I am running the same DP4 as others may be and also my initial question remains which is will the public betas be identical to DP versions?

    Tap the word VERSION under OS X Yosemite. The Version will change from:

    Version 10.10

    to

    Version 10.10 (build)

    DP4 is build 14A298i

    Regarding your second question, no one knows for sure, but I have no reason to believe that they would be different.

    Also... You don't have to be a developer to have a developers account.

    Yes but you have to be a paid developer to download iOS or Mac OS betas (with the exception of the Mavericks and Yosmite public betas).

    Stop trolling. Its very well known that tons of non-devs install these betas. I doubt your a dev. Most dev's i know don't have time to troll message boards.

    ----------


    Seriously? Get off of this thread and stop trolling. Everyone on this thread should report these trolling posts. Either help the guy or remain silent.

    Duff-Man says...this stuff comes up with every developer preview it seems. In the Mavericks forum there is a sticky thread put there by the moderators regarding running software without a proper license - I'm guessing some have not seen it but I'd think it applies just as much to 10.10 and iOS8 as it did to 10.9 and iOS7.

    Now, I don't think anyone really believes that the "pirating" of developer versions is going to stop and that those that did won't be posting around here, but perhaps just being aware of the forum rules about it may stop some of these nonsense comments....oh yeah!
