The talk about software and bug tracking in another thread got me wondering: Would I be willing to run beta software on my Model S? I'm assuming, for now, that problems with the main computer don't affect locomotion, so even if both dash screens are dead I can still drive (this may not be true). However, given all the things that _could_ go wrong, are any of us so committed that we'd be willing to endure buggy or unreliable software in order to help Tesla get the software tested and perfect? As for me, I'm not really sure. I've participated in beta tests for CAD software, Tivo, and numerous applications at work - nothing mission-critical. An automobile is a different thing, and we all have some expectation of reliability in the cars we drive. So: would you let Tesla treat you as a guinea pig, in return for more direct access to engineers to provide your feedback? /Mitch.
