People sure work hard to find things to be unhappy and complain about.

How is this any different from the constant occurrence of sales happening in every category of things you can spend money on? Do you get mad and write an angry letter when Steam sells a game for 80% off and DAMN IT YOU PAID FULL PRICE FOR THAT GAME.

Do you storm into the grocery store with a page of coupons waving in your white-knuckled fist and cry, "Fifty cents off a can of refried beans???? What the fuck is this? I bought some of these YESTERDAY and I didn't get no damn discount! This injustice shall not stand!"

The money you paid at the time, and what you got for it, was fair at the time. You obviously thought so, because you paid it. Whatever happens YEARS LATER, whatever deal other people might get at SOME OTHER TIME, has nothing to do with you. If you REALLY wanted to save money, you could have waited until some day in the future when Steam will be selling this game during a Summer sale for $4.99.

Of course, if many people chose that route . . . the game would never have been made.

People are not complaining about a closed alpha or beta test they don't have access to. If they did not pay for it they of course should not get access.
But this is NOT the situation right now: The game got a public release through Steam EA and backers who supported the game from the very beginning are left out. This is disappointing.

Steam EA is basically an open beta. No one is left out, you can simply wait for the complete game and final release; or you can help InXile both by giving them extra money and playtest the game.

I wouldn't be so against this if they had priced the game on early access higher than what original backers had to pay.
But they haven't. You're still getting exactly what you paid for. Nothing has changed on that end. You want more, because someone else is getting something as well. That's just childish.

And you are still getting those extras. No one is taking them away. Being upset that someone else is getting the same thing you are is sad and, as mentioned above, childish. It's not the devs fault you never learned to share. Be glad they are getting extra bug testers. The more people test, the better the final game is.

Is there any word on when or if the beta will be available on OS X? While I'm happy to have kicked in an extra $20 to help support the game, I'm bummed that I'm not able to play the beta on my platform.

I am ambivalent about the beta, while as an early supporter I feel let out... I also think betas are not enjoyable but just a huge mess. Somehow, I'd rather wait and work on my tabletop Numenera campaign (among other shits) and enjoy the game when it's done and stable.
