RC after Oct. 22nd?

I asked this question before in one of the threads but I guess it was missed. I can't believe that no one knows what is going to happen to Win7 RC after October 22nd.
Thanks

Windows 7 RC will keep running. On October 22 when Windows 7 is released you can get the fully released version. You will still be able to run the RC until August 2010 (well really March 2010 because of the shutdown feature).

Thanks. Another question. If I buy Win 7 upgrade, can I install it over my existing RC and keep all the settings?

No, it will require a full reinstall.

I don't know if there is a way to back up your settings though, I know you'll have to reinstall your programs.

I pre-ordered Win 7 Ultimate Upgrade. I have full version of Vista Home Premium 32bit. Did I do the right thing? Will I be able to do a clean install of Win 7 64bit? if I have Vista full version original disk?
Thank you
