    RTM upgrading(clean install)

    Been using each release since the initial release, but, haven't seen anyone address this question.
    Given that Win 7 and 8 will get a free upgrade, will we have the option, given a valid 7 install, to install it cleanly to, say a new SSD? Or will MS require us to do an inplace upgrade?
    Just curious.
