I messed up my system after a upgrade to 10.7.4. So I want to make fresh install of ML. However I am not sure if it's a good time to do it.

Is DP4 good/stable enough? Also, when the final release comes can I do a upgrade or do I have to reinstall again?

Thanks!

I think the GM will come in 1-2weeks. The GM build was the final (retail) build on Lion.

Is that possible to upgrade to final release? or do I have to reinstall?

Usually I have always reinstalled to start fresh and clean. But then I'm always using a secondary hard drive for testing purposes only, not my main stable system.

Maybe, but I really recommend to make a clean reinstall.

I read somewhere that the estimated time for final release is around 25th of July... Not so far away.
I'm just waiting for the XNU release, AMD with ML :P

Mountain Lion GM is out so retail installer is probably days (1 month) way.
