And it's not available anymore, they suspended the release cause the servers couldn't handle the load, no date on when it'll be available again.

I wish more people would take beta testing more seriously. People complain and complain when a program is released with bug in it. I place that blame on the Beta testers, they are the ones that are downloading the pre-release program not to fart around with it, but to find bugs and report them so they can be looked at, and fixed.

That's why companies need to pay professional beta testers, rather than rely on the general public to do it for free.

There is a problem with that as well. They might have programs that are relatively bug free then, but you will end up with a much more expensive program. Lets take Blizzard entertainment as an example. Before releasing World of Warcraft they had to do a server stress test, and have months of Beta and Alpha testing before they could go live, these tests had literally thousands of people taking part in the testing. Now if a company needed to higher thousands of people to test out the software, you will end up with software that is beyond anyones means to purchase. Beta testing used to be done in house, and for the most part Alpha is still done in house. (the server stress test for WOW had a couple hundred thousand people world wide to test server stabilities)
