    Yes, RC2 is time limited and expires on June 1 2007

    So far every RC I've seen from Microsoft (95, 2000, XP and 2003) has been
    upgradable to the full, final release.

    If it were possible in the versions you list Microsoft must
    have removed it because Win Server 2003 x64 and XP Pro x64
    were not upgradeable from the RC to final release. I have
    also seen it posted here that Vista RC would not be
    upgradeable to final release.

    I've only seen where they say it MIGHT not upgrade.
