The point of a beta release is to get a wider target for finding
problems before an actual release. People on beta programs expect the
beta software to be somewhat buggy and are so warned ahead of time.

And they're expected to report bugs. That's part of the beta
agreement. Compatibility is (or at least should be) an important part
of any OS release. If you're testing Vista beta and you're not
reporting compatibility bugs to Microsoft (clicking on the application
error dialog doesn't count) then you're not pulling your weight.
