Exactly what I was thinking. Plus the console was out of warranty. It warns you when you sign up for the program. I guess we've just given up on personal responsibility.

Does personal responsibility include owning your BS? Nowhere does it warn you that it could permanently break your system. You only know that because it already happened to other people. Here's what it actually says: https://news.xbox.co...?resize=940,528
Then when you click on the agreement to join the program, it states: "By choosing Accept, you are telling us you are eligible and willing to access and participate in previewing and providing feedback on Xbox content before it is rolled out to the general public, which could temporarily
cause diminished or lost functionality."
The descriptions for the Alpha rings read: "Preview Alpha is the cutting edge, and users in this group receive access to new features and fixes as soon as possible at the expense of potential bugs." The one for Alpha Skip-Ahead says: Preview Alpha Skip-Ahead offers an advanced look at a future version of Xbox One system updates. Users in this group receive very new features and fixes at the expense of potential bugs. "
Do you really think MS would explicitly state that the program could permanently brick your system? Why would they admit that it's a liability, and why would anyone join the program if that was the case?
