I have a project I need to do in LW in the next month. I sold my G5 about 6-8 months ago because all the talk of the UB LW coming soon. Now, I need to buy a machine (thinking the Dual 2.66 MacPro). What are my chances of the Beta (9.2 ?) working right for me ?

It's best to view UB LW as version of LW for an entirely new platform. You don't expect Windows plugins to work on Mac. In the same way, don't expect old Mac plugins to work on UB LW.

You can expect, within reason, LScripts to work everywhere, but this is not cast iron due to assumptions made historically about the way filesystems work.

Other than that, you'll need to join the OB. It costs nothing (except a valid 9.0 LW license) so you won't lose out, whichever way you go.
