What are the dangers of opting into this program?

Well it basically makes you a beta tester. I wouldn't call it dangerous per se, its just you are more likely to have bugs, glitches and maybe even system crashes. -All fixable as they work out the kinks with patches.

The upside is you get to try everything early and give feedback to potentially tailor the whole experience towards something you'd prefer or more importantly make it a better final product.

It's good to see they are expanding this to more folks along with 3rd parties.

For the most part all you have to do is weigh up whether that's a nice trade-off. Possibility of system instability but you can get access to Alpha/Beta tests. Not a bad offering to be honest.
