    No, don't think it will.

    Take notes of your favorite tweaks, and get ready for the clean install.

    I haven't seen a blue screen since XP.
    Never even saw one in Vista, even in beta.

    Sounds like Windows Vista.
    Sounds more like Windows 95. Ugh, I had a TERRIBLE time with that OS.

    Vista is a good OS, just didn't run well on older hardware, so got a bad rep.

    Had one yesterday with win 8, first since XP. But the beta will require a clean install. I don't think we will see the beta until 2012.

    An Alpha test is just that, an Alpha. Beta is the next test version. These are different versions of a piece of test software.

With early releases of Windows 7 (if there was any pre-releases before Win7 beta) did Microsoft make it so you could upgrade your installation to the W7 beta?
    No sir! This is a version for developers to make their programs compatible so when MS releases the RTM software's would be ready. So they don't expect users to use this as a everyday OS. So they won't us the option to upgrade it.
