I don't Forum PVP. If you feel I've attacked you, it was probably by accident.

Could be a couple things.

 

In nature, it's a dominant individual in a pack of animals.  Sort of a commonly accepted team leader.

 

In programming, it's a stage of development where the base framework of an application is in place, but features are commonly missing and bugs are not unusual.

 

In MMORPG's it's what used to be called "Beta" before that term was redefined as "free trial for people to play the game".
