This thread, in the first post, clearly indicates that an upgrade from the RC to the released version is not supported, but other threads say that MS says it IS supported. So, what is the real story?

I am aware of this fact...however I would point out
Home Premium $49 - Professional $99 (Dbl the Price) - Ultimate $219 (Dbl the Price).

Home Premium to Home Premium - ok
Home Premium to ultimate - ok
XP pro to Professional - ok

Home Premium to professional - NOT ok

If Microsoft wishes to allow XP Pro to upgrade to Professional then at Dbl the cost of Home Premium, users should be able to upgrade to Professional. Home Premium was the most distributed OS due to the OEM's and M$ has specifically excluded these users only from this upgrade. I was just pointing out that Microsoft is not the friendlier/softer company that a lot of people have been posting about lately. They are continuing to be rather preditory to the users who are their customers. Don't kid yourself.
