If you wanted, you could download a v6.xx and just update that all the way up to 8.04 when it's released in 9 days. But yes, I installed 8.04 (beta) last night, and although there were many updates to do it doesn't take much time. You will be able to fully update your beta to release when it happens.

i've had it for a few weeks. what it will do, is show an update notification, then when you update, it will say a partial upgrade is needed. you just do that and voila.

Traffic is always really bad the first day. First few days, actually.

You might want to wait. I always just download the install disk anyway.
