Dashboard Beta?

I understand it converts MS points into real-world currency, but is that the only thing this public beta does?

I don't see the point in going through the trouble of making this one simple change a beta instead of a regular update that everyone should've had in 2005.

The reason I'm asking is because I have it, so I want to know if something else will be changing.

Don't sign up for Dashboard Betas...waste of time unless they are rewarding you in someway.

This is supposed to be a full dashboard update, if I'm not mistaken. The currency change (if that is true, I wouldnt know...) is just a part of it all.

Yeah, switching the MS point to world currency will not be the only thing beta will have. We just have to wait and see.

Using your own money for microsoft points v buying microsoft points at a store. Is it possible for Microsoft to keep things the way they are? Or do they want to make themselves unpopular?
