"Maybe we can't do that because we can't try it... Some of us (aka anyone who bought Vista or Leopard) are sick and tired of PAYING to participate in beta tests ;) "


So don't leave comments then. It's hardly fair to criticize a product you're not even prepared to try.

The whole paying for betas is an old argument that's been addressed many times before, but at the end of the day it's not your product to dictate how it should or shouldn't be funded.

If money really is the only thing stopping you from actually posting something constructive then how about you wait a little more patiently for the /free/ live CD which has been promised, give that a spin, and then comment?

I, for one, am sick and tired of all the hard work these guys are doing getting completely ignored in favor of petty arguments from the open source community.
