    Yes, you will have an upgrade path that will eventually take you to the release version.

    Just remember that, if you choose to try the beta version, you will be running a test version of the OS. Expect bugs, odd issues, and lots of updates. While it is stable I would not recommend anybody trying it without having a backup plan should something really bad happen.

    I tried the Lucid Alpha 3 and it didn't even boot properly, so I'm waiting for the last beta to install it, but I have a separate partition for that, to avoid messing with my system. I will only install on my main partition if everything works fine.

    Anyway, I would wait two more days, grab the Beta 2, install on a separate partition. Then if it works fine, you could upgrade your main system.

    Keep in mind that upgrades usually render more problems that clean installations. Don't forget to disable any ppa repository before upgrading.
