Did the released versions not work with your hardware? If it is only for 
efficiency, I would prefer using a released version of lower efficiency 
for one month without the trouble which is likely to happen with the 
alpha version.

I think the alpha / beta releases aren't meant as a learning exercise 
for newbies but to help the developers to become aware of possible 
problems before the new version is released. If you install alpha / 
beta software you should better be able to get yourself out of trouble 
on your own.
