    Does the beta key expire for activation after "This" date?.

    ie: I can't "activate" after the final has been released?

    I think if I don't activate within 30 days I can still use it right? (just get annoying popup/desktop background lockout) but what if I activate later (ie: after final release), will the key still get accepted?

    the keys will work to activate the beta builds (and possibly RC), but the OS will expire after a certain date so after the expiration they can't be used to activate anymore.
