Apple Makes OS X Betas Available To All – With Conditions

Apple’s OS X Beta Seed Program, which lets you install the latest pre-release builds, try it out, and submit your feedback, is now open to anyone who wants to sign on rather than to developers and select others only as has been the case till now.

However, to enroll, you’re obliged to sign a pretty rigorous non-disclosure agreement that prohibits you from blabbing details about new features pre-release, reading in part: “Don’t blog, post screen shots, tweet or publicly post information about the pre-release Apple software, and don’t discuss the pre-release Apple software with or demonstrate it to others who are not in the OS X Beta Seed Program” Apple Legal warns.

Also, it’s imprudent to install beta OS software on any machine you rely on for production.

I’ll pass, but I’m glad somebody does this stuff.
