My guess is that most of us don't have extra systems to run the beta
releases on and can't afford to take the chance of having a system go
down when there are 6 or 10 or 30 schoolchildren depending on it. If I
could figure out a way to install a beta on my server and then reboot
if there's a show-stopper bug, I'd do it, but my primary job isn't
technical support--I'm a CS teacher using a self-contained lab and the
lab administration happens during the free time I can find when I'm
not planning for the six sections (three different classes, about 150
students) of classes I have to teach.
Don't get me wrong, I'm more than happy to help out by trying
pre-releases, but to make it more likely for that to happen, it has to
be easier to run them on production systems. Maybe a good investment
of time would be to create a simple way for people to create a
dual-boot system that uses the current settings so that, for example,
I could turn on the beta for a class or two to develop bug reports and
then switch back.
BTW, I haven't noticed that Hardy is slow at all on the two
stand-alone machines I've installed it on. I'm hoping to put it on my
system at school early next week. My only complaint is that Firefox 3
doesn't seem to be quite ready for prime-time, yet--the lack of some
of my favorite extensions has made me downgrade to Firefox 2 on both
machines I'm using.
