Snow Leopard Beta

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Anyone know if and when Snow Leopard will be released for beta?

It already has been: to developers who were at WWDC. It will presumably also be released to ADC select members at some point. Apple does not do open betas of their operating systems.

Except for MacOS 10.0 you mean

That was a pre-alpha.

There's actually a Snow Leopard torrent out already. That's about as open a release as there needs to be. Not much point installing it at this stage though. If it's got until next year before release, it may have a lot of bugs in it.

It would be interesting to know if it is already better/faster than Leopard though and if it has been stripped down at all. The torrent is still a dual layer disc size so it can't be much stripped down yet unless they've added a whole load of other crap we don't need.

Hmm... this is probably a special p2p edition.

Traditionally, Apple has treated its Developer Previews and Betas as distinct entities. This is the former, not the latter.

Go take a look at OS X DP2 and DP3 for example.
