i dont know where you guys got the idea that 6801 is a beta. it isn’t.
it’s a pre-beta build that got dished out at a conference and leaked to the web.
it was issued mostly to demonstrate the new kernel and there are certain things that are locked away from the unknoledgable user, including the new look task bar and some other funky stuff.
there is no beta testing group yet and mont be till at least feb or later next year.
thats why there is so much discussion and hype about it jsut now, because this OS hasn’t even made it to beta yet and it is this stable so early on (its extremely stable for the level of development it’s at).
