    You have to go through the info screens, and after agreeing "I have read the above and understand the limitations of using this beta software." you'll see the code and a link to the Mac App Store.

    I have my redemption code and went to go enter it in and I get a message that it has already been redeemed. I called Apple Care just to see if they had any insight. Was disconnected the first time before even getting a person. Second time got disconnected after I was put on hold while I was waiting for an answer. Third time I finally got someone who said that the code is working but because of the demand they are having an issue keeping up with the demand.

    If a company is setting up something like this and is limiting it to 1 million they should have been prepared for this type of demand and should have made sure everything could handle it.

    I have access to both, should I download the DP or Beta?

    Can anyone with experience let me know how stable either of these are? One of the blogs I read has said the latest DP is stable enough for everyday use. I am really tempted to try out the new itunes, but I just don't want to end up not being able to transfer songs to my phone, torrents wont work, or wifi dropping.

    I'm downloading the public beta, I'm confused by preview 4 and the public beta. Are they the same build? or is the public beta , preview 1?

    DP4 is build 14A298i. The beta release is 14A299i. So far I have not noticed any differences, though there are bound to be at least a few.

    Has anyone installed this on their main machine? I only have 1 Mac so I would like to see how Yosemite is running before I pull the trigger on the beta.

    I've been running the developer preview on my main Mac since the first one. Seems stable enough. I get intermittent wifi drops that are annoying but that's it for "major" issues.

    I took my spare MacBook and erased it completely and did a fresh install of the public beta and I have had very few bugs. I can't seem to get iPhoto, iMovie, or GarageBand to install. They download but when they "install" they encounter an error. Also I'm noticing that I don't have the Photos App. I'm having an issue with iTunes Match but everyone seems to be dealing with that.

    It looks and runs great for a "Beta 1" lol

    My only issue is Wifi too... My MacBook refuses to even see the network at my public library... While my iPad and iPhone see and connect to it just fine... And the MacBook sees/connects to other wifi networks fine...

    Keep me posted if you get iTunes Match working because that is a deal breaker for me since I use it constantly to transfer playlists and songs to my phone. As you already know it can sometimes even be shaky on Mavericks.

    OHHHHH now that makes sense. I didn't realize that was being sent after OS X was released.

    I found a bug thats slightly annoying. If I go to Clear History it wipes out all my "Remember Me" auto login stuff for Safari.

    Hello everyone,

    so far it's running quite smooth, except some flickering lights when I scroll down at the Finder. Has anyone else "upgraded" to iCloud Drive yet? Is it supposed to have all those "app extensions / folders" (how would you call it?!) like a Preview folder, Keynote folder etc. and I'm ONLY able to open a .pdf for example, when I drop it into the Preview folder but NOT when it's dropped into the TextEdit (of course! like on my Mac) but.. I thought this whole iCloud drive thing was the possibility to store some of my stuff?

    I can't "upload" anything as long as it's not going into one of theses above mentioned folders.


    Besides that, I like it a lot.

    For what it's worth - there are still codes available...

    I signed up for the public beta program just after they announced it. Then, after hearing all the warnings about not installing it on you main machine and making sure you have really good backups, etc., etc., I decided I would probably pass.

    The public beta was released last week and I decided to go for it. This is my only modern Mac (mid-2012 MacBook Pro), this is my primary machine, I have a few things backed up, but I don't have a spare drive, or a 'second machine.'

    My fallback position is my bootable USB drive with the original Mavericks installer on it.

    I'm NOT worried about data loss from Apple. Windows will do that (and has done that to me) at the drop of a hat, but not Apple. If I have to reinstall Mavericks or even reformat my drive, oh well, but I don't expect Apple to ever require that.

    This new OS is a dream! I've already submitted over half-a-dozen 'bug reports,' but there are no show-stoppers. With this AND the public beta of Xcode 6 I have everything I could ever want. I'll sign up for a paid developer account Later!
