Alpha Male

A beta version, as any software engineer will tell you,
Is ready for distribution to a subset of the intended audience
Possibly it has one or two minor bugs here and there
Requiring a few little tweaks to be perfect
But it's relatively mature
And usually performs as advertised

An alpha version, on the other hand
Should never be deliberately turned loose
So immature that even the basics need serious work
It may show a lot of promise
But is, for all practical purposes,
Useless, full of flaws, and utterly unreliable

You said you were an alpha male.
You were right.
