    Just got myself a copy of Microsoft Office for my MBP when it arrives. Im gonna install Windows 7 RC with boot camp for all my gaming needs. Was just wondering can i install office on Windows 7 RC, and then when it comes to being forced to upgrade to the retail version of Windows 7 will be able to install it again. Since i already used my product key on the RC version. Thanks for your time guys

    Yes. Your license info is sent to Microsoft and its for a MACHINE and not for a version of its OS. You may have to call Microsoft is the key says its already in use though because this has been known to happen from XP to Vista and it may interpret the RC as being on a different machine than the retail version but as of yet we don't know how it will react with retail.

    Yep, you can reinstall office with the same serial because you won't be using it on two separate computers. Since you will be doing a clean install when windows 7 comes out, everything will be wiped off the drive and you can then reinstall office.
