Apple has started taking registration for the public beta of OS X Yosemite, the latest version of their operating system. Eager participants will receive instructions on how to install Apple's latest and greatest as early as tomorrow.

Yosemite's public beta will be the same as is currently available to registered Apple developers, but will not be updated as regularly. However, before registering Apple advises early adaptors take note of the following:

Be sure that your Mac is running OS X Mavericks. If you don't have OS X Mavericks, you can download it free from the Mac App Store. We recommend installing OS X Yosemite Beta on a secondary Mac, since it may contain errors or inaccuracies. Please be sure to back up your Mac using Time Machine before you install the beta. This is beta software that is still in development, which means some applications and services may not work as expected. Some features require iOS 8, which is not being offered as part of the OS X Beta Program.

The program is limited to the first one million users to sign up on Apple's site. The official launch of OS X Yosemite is expected to fall in October.
