Hmmm. Perhaps we need a new version of Godwin's law?

I hope not.

Usually, the conversation drifts around to Bush when all U.S. citizens are lumped into the same category as him (e.g. 499 Europeans and 1 Bush who can't sleep from this post). I took exception to being labeled a 'Bush' and called it out. The rest was history.

I think the system does not matter. It should be one of the supported three systems. Test as much as u can and give reports as clear as possible.
indeed, i guess a big variety of different systems (as long as officially supported) is important; otherwise, beta-testing could be done on 3 super-computers in the ableton lab :wink:

another thing that may be helpful for beta testing is to ask testers again to give system information (filled maybe into a standard template?) in their footnote space..
just to prevent the ableton team to spend half day with sending reply mails that say "on what system did that happen?"
:wink:

greetings,
jan

I think it would be cool that all Betas had a direct "send bug/report" button tab..that sends the info of the beta and all data used with the beta to Ableton to assure all infos are correct.They would then know the variables involved/OS/etc..

For what it is worth, I am planning to forego the first round of the beta testing. (1) I really don't have enough experience with Live to be a proper 'first round' tester. The first round beta testing is probably the most important (followed by the first RC round), this where you should catch all the showstopping bugs. (2) I am beta-testing 2 other packages and adding a third package would not allow me to give any of the products their due dilligence. Please don't consider this to be lack of interest. In fact, I have my 150 bones back for the upgrade when the for sale sign get turned on.

they haven't - just that it's not last weekend and they'd need another week

Well, I think it is first come first serve. So, if a hardcore user, such as yourself, was among the first 500 to download it, then he/she would get a piece of the action.

Even after a strong cup of coffee I can't make heads or tails of this particular string of words.
