Freya Beta 1 Available For Developers & Testers

Daniel Foré ( project lead of elementary OS ) announced today that the first beta of elementary OS Freya is publicly available for developers and testers.

Be aware that this is not intended to be used in a production environment :

Software in the beta phase will generally have many more bugs in it than completed software, as well as speed/performance issues and may still cause crashes or data loss.

As omgubuntu says :

So, folks: beta. No finish. No polish. Much bugs. Get it? Got it? Good.

Let's get it :

Freya Beta 32bit | Torrent

Freya Beta 64bit  | Torrent
