Happy to see this beta is opened.

Anyway, I don't think I'll be able to participate under my linux system...

Does anyone heard about a linux release ?

It is almost certain that IV will release a Linux version, though it is equally likely that it will be a bit behind the Windows version.

It depends how related to defcon/darwinia code, as these already have linux versions? I would imagine the core of a linux version already exists.

Of course, I could be wrong if it is a complete rewrite from scratch?

Yeah, I was thinking about it, that's why I thought that the linux version could come early (in my best dreams I hoped at the same time that the windows release :D)
Anyway, we just have to wait for the beta first (windows, linux, mac ? all), we'll saw anything else after ;)

Well, almost two more days to go before it's been a week since the announcement. I think that - pretty literally - the download links will be sent out sooner or later now. :D

My mail gets checked every 10 minutes.... Google doesn't like mail clients checking more frequently than that...

I have a bad feeling that my Outlook 2007 tries gmail over IMAP every 20 seconds or so. I couldn't find the relevant option though :(

As a linux user I use claws-mail, I use Thunderbird if I have to use windows. Technically it's IMAP4.

This time I'll get into the beta. THIS TIME for sure

Look at that join date, Introversion! 2001! I just want into one beta! After all these years of checking the website at least once a week..?

We'll be able to tell when the beta starts the instant there is a topic in the Tester's forums. 30 seconds after that everyone who got in will come here and tell everyone else, and then 3 seconds afer that Introversion will post saying that testing has started. Then each week they will add more testers until the end of beta.

Then there will be cake, and it will not be a lie.
