OS X Beta Testing Now Open To The Public

Apple is letting the lowly, unwashed masses beta test OS X? Someone better call hell and check the temperature. eek!

Apple has released public beta tests of individual Mac apps in recent years, but OS X itself has largely been off-limits unless you've registered as a developer. That changes now that Apple has launched the OS X Beta Seed Program. Starting with OS X 10.9.3, you can try pre-release operating system updates by signing in with a garden variety Apple ID; oddly enough, you still have to sign a developer-style agreement promising to keep some details a secret.
