    Hi, I downloaded the GM last week and installed it. Regarding today's OS X Lion release; does it differ from the GM at all?

    Also, would I be able to update my GM as a normal operating system? I'm scared it has some sort of 'expire date.'

    If you are a developer you know the secret handshake and your system will never expire. If you stole it you will just have to wonder each day if your system will work. :D

    No, you can't update from GM to Retail because GM is Retail. You will be able to update like normal.

    I try not to judge but like others have said GM = retail. You will be fine and might want to donate $30 to Apple at some point in time :)
