Can you explain what a " beta "  download is , why i should take it or not.
I'm on Vista.
Thanks for your help.

A beta version of a program is the newest most updated version, but it hasn't been fully tested yet so It will usually have a few bugs.

Well, sort of...

A beta is "NOT" the latest update.  The latest update to a program is the standard release.

A Beta is a "TEST" version of a program that could end up being the release candidate of the software that is being tested.  Not all companies share their beta version, and in fact, most test in-house.

Some companies, do however share "stable" and "nonstable" beta versions of their software.

Just remember, if you are using a beta, it could contain bugs, and could cause harm to your system.
