Gary, I think I was guilty of a little misunderstanding on this thread. I was referring to Beta testers.
One of my enthusiastic family has justy received an Email which seems to tally with this.
You are concerned with being a Beta tester. I think it is a fine line in this particular case. Half of the interested world have downloaded the official, public release. This of course, makes them Beta participants. I really could not split the difference, but I would not be sure that this makes them, automatically, Beta testers?? I doubt if Microsoft could afford to hand out all those free Technet Plus subscriptions, although I do remember reading a few months ago that they intend to rationalise there various subscription offers, and even abandon some, so it possibly does not worry them too much??

Hi Dave,

I doubt that it worries them any. They want and need the *buzz*. It doesn't worry me any either. Maybe they listen, maybe they don't. But just in case they do.... I think Bill Gates once said if they're going to pirate software, I want them to pirate our software. Not the exact quote maybe. I don't have any paid subscription to Technet, but have been considering it. Doesn't really matter if they notice me. That's not really my intent. Just hope they consider what we all have to say.

Your right, my last name starts with an A so that could be possible.
