Yes, they have not released the final version nor a trial livecd yet and as such, you have to pay to be able to get to try it. But paying that one-time-fee allows you to use any upcoming releases all the way to the final release. If that doesn't sound like a good deal to you then you are clearly not the target audience. Your loss, I'd say.

"Your loss, I'd say."

I am one of the idiots who paid to be a beta tester.
If I hadn't, I wouldn't have lost anything, excepting for satisfying my curiosity.

Give the guy a break.Its not a kill-cow donation and the end product is free to those who paid up for the testing.

If anything its well deserved.

All money goes toward the various costs associated with development (hosting, hardware for testing, etc). No one is paid. And, as was said, you also get the final version once it is released.
