The well-connected Jim Dalrymple of The Loop reports that Apple will seed the public beta of OS X Yosemite tomorrow, Thursday, July 24th. The first million Mac users that have signed up for the OS X Beta Program will be able to install the pre-release software for testing without a developer account.
According to Dalrymple, the most recent OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 4 will be the beta version that is released to the public. Apple will then focus on seeding subsequent beta versions to developers for testing, with public releases happening on a less frequent basis.
It is highly recommended that you install OS X Yosemite on a secondary Mac, as pre-release software can be prone to bugs and other problems that will be fixed in time for the final build that ships around October. It would also be wise to backup your Mac before installing the public beta to prevent any data loss.
If you have not already done so, make sure you sign up for the OS X Beta Program to ensure access to the public beta when it is released.
Are you planning to take the software for a test drive?
