There is no media that is not biased. At least with wikipedia there is the oppertunity for all sides to be published so a neutral point may eventually come across.

And as xander mentioned, encyclopedias are not the place to base research on, it does however give you the opertunity to start somewhere. The decent wikipedia articles have external links and citations to confirm the details provided.

Signed up as well now...

... did anybody past the first wave of selected beta testers actually got selected again? Like 2 weeks ago or so?
Just wondering if introversion even selects people applying 3 month after the call.
Well... hoping... ;)

It is quite probable that IV will keep selecting people every one in a while until the game is done being tested. So, while you are a bit late, you still have a chance, I suppose.

As there still is a chance to be added to the beta-test, just a quick question:
I have got 3 Pcs, one of them Dual-Boot Windows/Linux. As applying several times overwrites the previous apply, which of the possible 4 systems should I use?

You should use the Windows boot. As Defcon is only available for Windows right now.

Yeah, but if my understanding is correct, it is unlikely that too many more Windows testers will be needed (though you could always hope). I would sign up with a Linux box, myself, on the theory that when the Linux version is nearly done, Linux testers will be needed. It means that you have to wait longer to "play" the game, but if you are supposed to be testing, the point is not to have fun :)

No. Right now, the Windows version of Defcon is being tested. Beta testing for the Mac and Linux versions has not even begun yet. Based on the Darwinia release, I would imagine that Mac Defcon is at least two, probably three or four, months away, assuming that the first betas began tomorrow. As Defcon is not quite as complicated a game (I think -- I could be wrong), it is possible that testing will go much faster than Darwinia, which would/could significantly reduce that time estimate.
