    Released version

    So when this "10" is released will it be as straight forward as putting in a legal s/n or will it have to be wiped and reinstalled.

    If past experience is anything to go by offically you will be required to reload but there will be some dirty workarounds to allow an in place upgrade to the final release version.

    A clean install of the release version of an OS has always been preferred, and often officially required. Unless Microsoft specifically says otherwise this should be assumed.

    Always do a clean Install of the final release.

    There probably will be a GM seed delta update and RTM is part of the golden master so...
    probably taking a leaf out of apple's book in the update department.

    But then again, they won't make money giving it away for free to all technical previewers.
