It would be nice if companies stopped making you pay to become a beta tester, after all, you're actually helping them.
I used OS/2 until Version 4, then my new hardware wouldn't boot it anymore...
I'd gladly use eComstation on a second PC, just for kicks.

They have a live CD of the current version (non-beta). I tried it on my 3 year old IBM PC... it worked well. Maybe the figure that if you pay to be in the Beta program, you will actually use it/test it and report back to them, since you've invested somethiing into it.
