But if that is true (and I believe it is), then why is it considered "alpha"
software? For indeed, Alpha version software is typically not usable at all
either due to bugs which plague it and/or due to it being "feature
incomplete." So if there are no major bugs and if it is largely "feature
complete," I would expect it to have been called "beta" or "pre-release"
rather than "alpha." But then again, perhaps the individual who programmed
it simply did not understand the differences between "alpha" and "beta"
