A beta version is typically the first new version of a product that is released by the developers of the software. The purpose of beta versions is for real-world testing. As such, the software will probably contain bugs or glitches. Unless your interested in testing the product to help the developers find these bugs, you should wait for the full release.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
