then it's safe to say to install windows7 only on a system with dual boot ?
since it wont work after the expiration date on the builds ?

i wonder what would happen after the expiration date ?

Hello Edrik,

They will continue to work until they expire on or around 03/01/2010.

Yep, the RTM will be for sale on 10/22/2009. As long as you have the builds activated, they will be good until they expire. If not, you can use the rearm option to have a unactived build last for up to 120 days.
