My point was that the beta testing phase where you find bugs
and report them should have been done before they put the
CDs on the shelves. Redhat do a beta release or two before
bringing out new distributions; I think, after experiencing
the SuSE-6.4 CDs, SuSE should be doing the same. Being human

We have done this in the past. We got __TWO__ bug reports.
We have in the moment a lot of beta testers. Less then 1% of
them write bug reports.

So, making a big, public beta testing phase doesn't solve
this problems. And if you look at the updates, the most one
are very special and only a few people needs them. This will
always happen. Even with a public beta phase.

Linux is like a Vorlon. It is incredibly powerful, gives terse,
cryptic answers and has a lot of things going on in the background.
