  • I am very interested in testing the RC.  Does anyone know if the RC will be upgradable to the RTM??

    Thanks,

  • Do not know for certain either way but suspect it will require a clean install to the eventual RTM. 

    For myself, I would do a clean install regardless.  While the code is still being chopped around by the coders, just doing an upgrade will probably leave a lot of unnessary rubbish lying around in the system. Installing from scatch will give the cleanest possible start to your new system.

  • Very doubtful.  I don't think this has ever happened with any microsoft product.

    There a lots and lots of Microsoft products that have been upgradeable from
    an RC to RTM.

    Off the top of my head Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 were both
    upgradeable from the RC. As was Windows 7 with a small hack.

    You forgot to do your backup 16 days ago.  Tomorrow you will need that
    version.
