It is important to understand that the technical beta release does not have the stability of released Microsoft software.

At least it's on a computer. That way you can filter it out.

Hmmm....
I was thinking of an idea for anti-ad software. Not only would it prevent you from having to see ads, but it would rebroadcast the content of the ads back to the originating server. That way, very annoying web advertizers would be DOS'ed by their own ads. Seems like poetic justice to me.
