Now, imagine you have an application called "xpto". You have two versions of it: one is called "xpto beta" and the other only "xpto". What will you guess? Well, if you're not one of those belonging to the "MySpace generation", 10 year-ld kids that only saw "beta" in Web 2.0 apps, you can't miss this: "Xpto beta" was an almost-release yet-buggy version of Xpto, and then, when final and stable "Xpto" came.
What intrigues me is what the hell is happening in Google people's minds: Why, after having Blogger for years, WHY do we have NOW "Blogger Beta"? HELLO?
