    I was planning to do an upgrade over my existing os x installation, since I have way too much stuff installed and setup on my current setup. Would making a time machine backup of my entire drive and then performing a clean install of yosemite and restore from my timemachine back up be the next best thing compared to formatting my drive clean and installing a fresh new copy and then taking the time to set up everything from scratch again such as installing and configuring all my apps, emails, settings, etc?

    I really hope I can just do a clean install and the restoring from my time machine back up.

    What have you guys done?

    Dual boot ? I just made another partition in Disk Utility and installed onto that. No issues at all in terms of dual-booting and easy access to documents and so on from the 10.9.3 partition :)

    Nice to know. Maybe I can participate in the beta program after all.
