B - E - T - A does not mean "in production" or "on a box you care about"
I am running a beta of Vista at home...not that I really meant to...but I kinda loaded it up in a dual boot and it's been on the Vista side ever since...but at the office..in the real world where it counts.... I rarely run betas....the exception being the Microsoft Antispyware product.
I don't install IE 7 on any machine...and I don't like the fact that seemingly it's not being quite warned about on blogs and other sources as that it truly is a beta...heck there's even a patch in the optional section that refers to IE 7
Then DO NOT install the ISA 2006 beta on a SBS 2003 box. Remember that we are an integrated platform and we wait for our parts. And I already saw a poster in the newsgroup do this.
Repeat after me... you DO NOT install betas on computers that you care about.
