I'm not sure what exactly they want us to "alpha / beta test" !!
AFAIK, all these programs have final version availible.

Also there are already beta testers for Snort.

The other two IDS solutions run on Windows only and I think they're trying
to corrlate data on how well different IDS's run on Windows.


thoughts?
