A few Gigastrand OS Alpha test systems have been sent out for test market to a limited number of participants.
The program is designed to get the OS into the hands of actual consumers to test the marketability of the OS as well as its features. This is the start of an expanded program where people can provide their own hardware to test and give feedback.
This is a limited test for now with only a hand-picked few able to participate. Gigastrand will expand the program once a viable BETA has been released.
