Advice on Vista Upgrade RRS feed

  • Question

  • This is addressed to former CPP participants who have purchased and installed Vista.
     
    I am running RC-1 (Build 5600) and XP as a dual boot on separate hard drives.  It's getting close (under 60 days) until the termination date of the Beta versions.  I am still undecided  whether to purchase Vista or go back to XP, so would appreciate answers to following questions.  (Please, no rants!) 
    1.  Are there any significant differences between RC-1 and final versions?
     2.  What exactly happens on 1 June when the beta expires?  Will Vista RC-1 be completely gone, or will it be available in a limited capability?
      3.  If I do decide to delete RC-1, reformat HD-1, and install Vista Home Premium Upgrade there,      will I be able to keep my dual boot with XP?
