    Has anyone tried a retail box version of Snow Leopard as a way to upgrade from a Developer Preview? I am aware that Apple said you wouldn't be able to upgrade from a DP I'm curious to see whether it is in fact it is in fact possible (just like how Tiger->Leopard with only the £25 edition is in fact possible)?

    Works just fine. Did it last night. 2007 Mac Mini, took about 70 minutes to install.

    Nice :) And this is upgrading right, or does having a developer build necessitate a clean install?
