    Can I install Mountain Lion Preview 2 over Preview 1 when it is out?

    No.

    From what I understand is that you need a fresh install over each release.

    I stand to be corrected, though.

    Didn't the Lion preview update itself via the App Store?

    If so, I'd assume the ML preview will do the same.

    There's no guarantee until it comes out, but based on Lion, you should be able to. Most of the time it updated itself via the AppStore, however there were a few builds that did it via Software Updates.

    And what about the first installation of 10.8 over Lion?

    I have downloaded the installer but it is still "sitting" in my application folder waiting ... One question though about installation process... is there an option to upgrade from 10.7 or a clean installation over Lion is the only way possible?

    I'm shivering to the thought of having to reinstall ALL my applications, and passwords, and preferences ...
