@blizzard182: Since Home is an online product that is going to constantly evolve, we aren’t calling the unveiling in October a “launch” per se, like you would a boxed retail product. However, it will be fully open to the public at that time.
open beta is a different thing all together.
So, to sum all that up, they consider what we used to call the "final release" the "open beta" (since it is still being worked on) and any other betas that come between now and then would be just large scale closed betas.
I can't wait for the next HLSCB!!! (Home Large Scale Closed Beta)

whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat is wrong with your eyes??? after 384 u just stopped reading???

Does this make me mad if this happens? Not really. I very much prefer them to skip that and get it out in fall then push it back.

Yea he's admin but if they had a definite roll out date they would say it. And like the guy on top of me said "Look at comment 391. He said since Home is constantly evolving it's release in October is not going to be considered the final one. He said it'll be fully open to the public in October. Open beta is something different."
