You'd think so wouldn't you!?  I made a mistake by buying Beta software 
before (Kapital, from TheKompany).. They had promises all over their 
site saying that they are finishing up, order now and get it for half 
off.. Well, it has been two years and they are still beta and it is 
frankly unusable.

Not again.  Dont pay for Beta software.. Let that be done by the 
investors... if you think the product will do well, perhaps buying the 
companies stock will help it along... Buying beta software is only to 
their advantage (they keep the money, regardless of completion).
