Apple launches Beta Seed for OS X program for end users

Ever dreamed of an opportunity to try out new versions of OS X before they're released, but without having to pony up the $99 to become a registered developer? Well, that opportunity's here: On Tuesday, Apple announced a new initiative, the OS X Beta Seed Program.

All in all, while this may be a departure from Apple's famed modus operandi of surprise-and-secrecy, it seems to be par for the course for Tim Cook's Apple, which has made several moves towards better openness and transparency. Given OS X's state as a mature piece of software, it's not surprising for Apple to make this move with its desktop OS — I wouldn't expect to see the company make a similar move for the younger iOS anytime soon, though.
