Default Difference between 1.5 and 1.5 open beta?

In the downloads page, I see that I can download 1.5 or 1.5 open beta. What's the difference between the two? Are the same multiplayer servers available on each? Which one is more popular for multiplayer? Thanks.

the open beta gets sometimes the updates earlier, to test them out and find some bugs

versions on the stable release are mostly a bit more polished than the open beta ones...

stable is mostly more popular, if they release a new aircraft in ob, then ob is more popular

but if they are the same version, it doesn't matter which one you got, but if they are different versions, sometimes you won't get on servers with ob if you are on stable and the other way round too...

I hear a lot about this "open conflict" server. Is that on beta or normal? Thanks.

most likely stable version, but at the moment it doesn't matter which version you use

Thanks, one last question. Do both have the 2.0 level graphics engine?

Neither has the 2.0 graphics. That's why they are being merged with an updated Caucasus map into 2.5 - which is due later this year.
