Which means nothing.  the problem may not affect most or the majority of users.  That doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. 
 
Beta testing is done with a lot of people using a lot of different computers because a program that works well on most machines may not on some and the purpose of beta testing is to look for unknown problems that show up on some systems.
