The OS X Beta Seed Program gives users the opportunity to run pre-release software. Test-drive beta software and provide quality and usability feedback that will help make OS X even better.
This is pretty big news. Before today, you had to have an Apple Developer account ($99 a year) to download and install the pre-release betas of OS X on your Macs. Now, anyone can do it for free — just be sure to back-up your system before doing so.
If this beta-seeding program goes well, I wonder if Apple would ever expand it to including pre-release versions of iOS?
