Hahahaha. Oh Steven it's good to have you back.

That's the way open source software works... they release an Alpha in the hope that some mad people will use it and report bugs, because they don't have the resources to test it properly themselves - *but* the caveat is that they need those people to be sufficiently experienced to help them debug the bugs.. Alpha, in the software world, means "unstable, unsuitable for general use, will probably not work properly, and you will almost certainly lose all your data if you try it". In my experience, even the Betas aren't much better. If you're interested in seeing it and you have a spare PC then go for it, but don't expect much support and don't expect it to work properly. It will be a curiosity, nothing more.

They're only trying to save you from yourself... :)
