Has anyone begun receiving invitations yet?  It will be nice if we can install this within a VM (i.e., Parallels).  I'd rather not run from an external drive and won't risk my primary system.

Just signed up. Will install it on a mid 2009 MBP when the code arrives. Why? Just for fun!

If you use Trim Enabler, there are some issues in beta 4.  It will work, but you have to disable the blocking of modified kernels.  You will also have to run the program from within the trim enabler package for it to run or else you will get a version error.  

 

Just an FYI.

Are you referring to Trim Enabler from Cindori software?

I was able to do that with early Mavericks betas. I haven't tried it with Yosemite but I would be surprised if the latest build of Parallels 9 didn't support Yosemite as a guest OS.

Is Yosemite compatible with Ruby and Ruby on Rails? I don't want to mess up my development environment.

 

If you're asking that, then you should even entertain the idea of running Yosemite.  It's beta.

Even if you have not received the email from Apple, you can access your download code through the beta signup page. Downloading on my Parallels VM.

How do you do that? Mind running through the steps?

It's the App store, no tangible products sold or given away there.  Thus, even if the sentences grammatically (I'm not sure ) indicates that the whole computer rather that simply the software is free it should be quite clear from the context.

No need for rain; I was enjoying his parade.

Judging from your avatar, you're averse to impurrrrfection.

I personally think the GUI isn't that great. Not quite Windows 8.1 bad, but heading in that direction. The Mac is supposed to be, above all, the computer that's easy to use. Their thinking seems to be "minimialist->simpler->easier to use." But really it should be "more intuitive->easier to use," and the most intuitive GUI is not always the most minimalist one.

And the least minimalist GUI is not always the most intuitive; so we're both right.

Nice mockup with The Rock in the background.
