I know better than to expect Alpha software to behave perfectly without any bugs or snags.
But instead of jumping through all the hoops on a web site that is either broken or deliriously confusing, I'll simply play and report my findings to the e-mail list instead of putting myself through the aggravation and confusion of "joining the QA team" to report my findings "properly."
It's all good.
And by the way, my ranting blog post had nothing to do with how 14.04 performed in a test. It's about the confusing and frustrating process of joining the QA team. Jus' say'n.
