IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve been using a pre beta version of Windows 7 for several weeks now and just installed the official beta release of Windows 7 yesterday. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve spent time installing programs, files, etc. from my XP system as well as doing some customizing of Windows 7. The operating system works great and IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m looking forward to the final release. However, I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t want to continue to spend a lot more time on this process if it turns out IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll have to start all over when the final version is released. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s probably premature but does anybody know if Microsoft will offer an upgrade path from the beta version to the final release? No, I do not own a copy of Vista.
