Apple "Apple has begun a new program, called AppleSeed, to give non-developers access to pre-release versions of Mac OS X. The program aims to collect 'feedback on the quality and usability' of Mac OS X 'in environments that cannot be replicated by Apple'. So far it appears to be quite limited and available only by direct invitation from Apple."

It's not a new program

This article previously stated that the AppleSeed program itself is new. However, a few Ars readers let us know in the comments that the program itself has actually been around since at least 2003, though this is the first time we were made aware of the practice for Mac OS X. The same program is apparently also used to give industry professionals early access to Final Cut Pro, Aperture, and other software.
