    It has been rumored and written in articles that you can upgrade in place from RC to the final version (GA).I haven't done it so I can not confirm it. However...

    A: You will still need a qualifying OS to use upgrade media (Vista, Xp what have you) which is cheaper.

    B: You will find that most people will recommend that you clean install anyway... it's that much better.

    Just remember I can't confirm that it works, I'm pretty sure I can find you articles that read windows 7 is free forever doesn't mean MS gonna send one in the mail.

    The good news is that all you can lose if it fails is the Windows 7 installation that you had to nuke anyway.
