Win 7 + future updates = final version ?

Hello,

I have a Dual Boot Vista-Seven, essentially to test the RC version. I love it and I think about doing a clean and unique install of Seven.
But when the RTM or the commercial version will release, will they be the same OSs as the RC with future updates?
Or will they may be some modifications not included in the updates?

I hope you understand my reflexion.


Bad english, sorry, I'm a french speaker.

There may be some functional changes between RC and RTM. There is even rumor of some User Interface change that may only appear in the RTM, but that is still only rumor.

But whichever way you go, when Windows 7 finally does go RTM and you purchase a valid licence and install media, you will not be able to "upgrade" install from RC to RTM. You will need to do a clean install.
