Would it be worth it to become a developer, not to develop, but just to have access to iOS 5 and iCloud?

Access to iCloud to me is really not all that cool. I mean, yea you have all my apps and music. But, if I remember right, I could have re-downloaded all my apps and music from App Store and Itunes before, now it just does it for me. What I really want is the iCloud that you have to pay for and will Match my music.

Definitely worth it, I don't care to develop either but for a iOS device? My experience is slowness and crashyness for every app I've tried on my iPod touch 4, It sucks and ill never buy apple again, But I'm always interested in trying their "New Software" which doesn't seem to be any faster each update.

You won't buy Apple because of a glitchy beta? A beta is a test. It's not the official version. It's there to find the flaws and hopefully they get reported and Apple will fix it.

I registered for developer two moths ago and haven't really got any use for it.

The question to a specific answer is:

How much money would you be willing to spend for the beta access?

If you have a hundred dollars laying around then go with the official apple developer access. You'll have some support should you have any issues and there's a few other pluses.

For those that are low on cash there are many developers and even small businesses that will register your UDID so you can use the developer iOS Version without any activation problems

I'd recommend the first one but whatever works

You can access the beta without registering as a developer. There are sites that allow you to download the beta and give you instructions on getting around registering your iDevice for beta use. This method isn't recommended because it can brick the iDevice or have problems that wouldn't have shown up if you had registered.

Of course it isn't. It's an unstable beta that is for testing devices only. To pay $100 just to access that when you could get the full stable version for free in a month or two is just impatient. God damn.
