    • Alpha - Im on the bleeding edge!
    • Pre Alpha - Its not so bad once you disable error reporting!
  2. 2. Drivers / System software

    • Latest Stable Please!
    • Beta but only its not too new
    • Beta - I gotta squeeze 3 more frames per second out of this rig
    • Alpha - Because I can

For OS and service packs I go with RTM only. I really dont like beta testing that stuff.

For drivers I use stable release, except for NVIDIA GeForce drivers. Those I generally use betas.

For applications, its a mixed bag. For example I only use Firefox releases but I have no problem with Ad Muncher betas or the latest SMPlayer builds.
