It even works better than WinWorld, since most of their ISOs are a pile of junk when you extract them.

Yeah, if you want beta builds, BetaArchive is the website to be at. However to access the server that has the betas builds, you need to be active on their forum, and also be added into one of their special forum groups as well, which I don't understand myself... I used to be a BetaArchive forum user for a short time, but not anymore...

BetaArchive sucks IMO. The rules of getting accepted into their FTP servers are so strict that I've honestly never saw any worse rules yet in my life.

I only joined their forums because I wanted to talk about operating systems. This was before I found out about this one from mjd (Michael).
