If it's ready for prime-time, why do we have to wait til June?


They are creating the buzz for making the release a success while they are fixing the last bugs, I suppose.

I am currently FF 3b4. It's is fast and very stable, so I think it will be successful.

There's also this little thing they do where they try to get all the localized versions built and tested, and all the various platforms built and tested before they do the official launch... or at least, that's my impression.

Edit: nevermind - i see they've already built all the localized versions ;)

In other words, it's not ready for prime time. Fix the bugs ... and then you're ready.

If you're going to wait until every last bug is fixed you'll never be ready. At some point you simply have to call it good enough.
