Quick Answer: Yes

You could upgrade from a build to another build but it is recommended to do a clean install.

I tried the upgrade function once ... only once though. In the time that it took ( 2.5 hours ) I could have done a clean install and restored all the apps, and still have enough time for a nice nap!

Hi CashOverrideSE,

Depending on what version you are upgrading to (7100 RC is the last official release) it will stay active untill March 2010.

Hope this helps
