Question When Windows 7 Beta runs out in August, what then....?

After reading lots of positive posts about Windows 7, I have decided to try it alongside of Vista. I was curious what will happen in August when it's time is up and the death toll rings? Where will that leave us? And what would be our options?

PS Anyone know how to cook corn beef on this awesome St. Patrick's Day?

There will be a new build released before then. At least to testers. Not sure if Microsoft is going to release another public build. If they do not, just format the partition that Win7 is on. Can also set your date back in the BIOS to keep using it as well.

PS - if the wife was awake i could get that answer. But she is sleeping sadly.
