Looking forward to testing the Windows version. Do you plan to add animation capabilities to the hair plugin ie dynamic hair?

Folks need to learn first how to use the plugin and how to create the hair to look decent before thinking about exporting to anything else
I am for the future add ons as well but for now that would be great to get well working DS version that use internal renderer as that is what is missing on this moment in DS, personally I don't care about anything else as I have Zbrush for use with external renderers, most of my commercial clients request DS's working hair where they can animate or pose the characters for own projects , and Luxrender, Octane or Poser are another chapter that have nothing to do with this release at this moment as that will only slow down everything and personally I don't want to wait another 6 months , so awaiting the DS PC beta build at this moment

Anyway for version 1 of garibaldi, exporting to external formats or renderers will not be supported, the primary goal was to make sure it functioned well with Daz Studio's internal renderer.

I wonder how these hair systems will impact the hair market. I'm sure their are a few vendors that specialize in hair who are kinda at panic stations.

you should ask them lol hehe
but I would not worry , the same question was when Zbrush show up with the fiber .. seems like not much impact on the market at all
you still have to make the hair style as it does not make for you by standard and that is not so simple 5 sec work if you go for the best realistic look but well possible . Creative people will save a lot of money for sure

For a large percentage of the average hobbyists, I would imagine pre-made hair props are still going to be preferable... as long as the price is within reason. After all, the existence of the hair room in poser certainly hasn't hurt the hair market to date, has it?

Still playing around a bit with Beta 2. I'm traveling - so haven't had a chance to use it on my main machine - but on my laptop, I did a quick render and added some Garibaldi Hair to the Genesis character.

So far the Mac version has been very easy to use. The interface seems simple to learn - but extremely flexible.

Real hair dynamics are outside the scope of version 1. For animation garibaldi express will automatically follow the surface of the attatched parent geometry, the output will be flicker free from frame to frame.
Hair dynamics are tricky to do well in a flexible way, it's a sizable project on it's own.

I would hope that seen as a opportunity for content creates to expand their range of products in a new area. Hopefully it will be a win for the users, content creators and plugin provides alike.
For some uses textured geo based hair will still be the right choice.

Looks great. I assume you did the facial hair in garibaldi too?
