Apple Launches OS X Beta Seed Program

Big, surprising news yesterday from Apple. Describing the new program:

The OS X Beta Seed Program gives users the opportunity to run pre-release software. Test-drive beta software and provide quality and usability feedback that will help make OS X even better. I've been part of the Apple Seed program for a while now, in which customers get access to developer seeds of OS X. (In fact, I was running Mountain Lion betas before its release in 2012.) Previously, the Seed program was invite-only, but now it's open to all. I wonder if Apple decided to just open Apple Seed to everyone; in any case, I, too, have a feeling that OS X will be getting some serious stage time at WWDC in June.
