At this point in time, I am honestly afraid to download, I think I'll wait I have too much important stuff going on.

I think it was Leonardo da Vinci who once said something along the lines of "If you build the robots, they will make games." or something to that effect.

From my point of view every version of windows is a beta version (Well okey vista was an alpha version but still . . . )  :D , hell some "Final" versions of Ubuntu (When I still used it) were beta versions too.  ;)

Didn't we all do stupid things like that on our computers? Or were you born a software engineer from your mum's womb ? :D

Yeah I'm actually going to dare try this MF out later this evening......I have a fresh spanking brand new SATA3 drive I will test this on, but this is an early stage, things can change to the RTM, so I'm not expecting flawless not even close lol

Partially correct.  Vista was pre-alpha :P
the rest, beta and its users as guinea pigs.
I guess one could say the same about other software too.....:D

No not necessarily - I'm thinking some software in general that are very buggy and poorly tested.

As to YYG let's give them credit when due, they made some very positive changes lately.
Version 1.4 is not officially released, and lots of interesting changes with the IDE that any LGM user would have wet dreams about :P
but with every positive change comes the negatives i'm afraid so yeah, work in progress.....But we should not talk, as ENIGMA is a WIP too lol!

Not a fair comparision, since LGM/ENIGMA is a FOSS and heavily understaffed. A much better comparision would be between :

Autodesk 3ds Max (formerly 3D Studio MAX) / Autodesk Maya vs Blender (if you insist in making it closed source vs FOSS)

Also ENIGMA is not a WIP, it's in Beta stage, when it's in release stage then it would be more of a fair comparision, since any software you sell is supposed to be in this stage.

ENIGMA is no longer Alpha? Woohoo! :P

Well I finally downloaded the ISO. burned it (luckily I had some old cheap crap DVD lying around, as I did not want to waste some good Taiyo Yuden Premium discs!) :D I have some spare brand spanking new SATA2 drives lying around, set it in my eSATA case, brand new non formatted drive, I will disable my main drive and make the full install on that new drive, no VM crap, I want to test this on a physical drive, native hardware, everything.  So if worse comes to worse I just remove that drive, and reactivate my main one, no harm done.

That's how I always tested shit, never did it on my primary drive (but no worries, I've done far worse mistakes lol!)

So there, if nobody hears from me in a couple of days this means I lost my sanity, and windows 10 is to blame.....So assuming I'm still sane and my hardware does not explode :P I will be back to report with my comments on this technical preview.

Wish me luck ! :D :D :D
