Although people can put effort to bypass either "live" WAT or "beta" WAT, the final SP1 should be bigger than the current beta by making previous patches "mandatory", while testing a few things at this time. Unless these betas have debugging code to be stripped out. Plus, they may push new things to newer betas until they reach final, release status.
Now, what exactly have changed in this Beta SP1? Or is it just a compilation of all KBs launched so far? I read somewhere (Lifehacker I guess) they improve Remote Desktop client and was pretty much just that. Is that true??

just want to know if i have to save all my files/apps/data as they will all be deleted or if i can just install without losing any info?
My guess is, as always, you should apply this SP1 over current Windows 7. All your personal data should not be touched. Again, is a guess, I'm at work and can't mess installing a beta patch on my workstation. Now, where is that damn dev box...
