    This week I'm goona need to do a clean install of OSX on my macbook. Since OSX El Capitan will be released soon (october?), I was wondering: If I do a clean install of the current OSX El Capitan beta, will it be upgradeable to the RC/final consumer release? Should the final version correct all beta bugs and let us with a perfect final version (perfect in the sense of equal to a fresh OSX RC/final version)
    ?
    I would not like to have to format my machine two times and install everything again.
    thanks

    That's the way it worked with Yosemite, upgraded from beta to official release version. Assuming it will be the same for El Capitan.

    When I tried 10.10 beta, I installed 10.10 final, but I kept getting new beta versions after 10.10 final :/
    I had to reinstall 10.10 final to stop the beta coming :/

    This is important. But was OSX working fine? Besides you being prompted about 10.10.1 betas and so on, could you normally install and use the consumer releases of every update?
