Some update questions

For various reasons, I didn't update Seattle to Berlin. Now that Windows 10 is running on my machine and Berlin Update 1 is out, I want to update but I have some questions.

1) Should I uninstall Seattle before installing Berlin?

2) Can I install Berlin Update 1 or do I have to install Berlin and then the update?

2A) If I do have to install Berlin before the update, should I uninstall it before installing the update?

You can have Seattle and Berlin installed side-by-side, as Berlin is a new version number.

Updates are always cumulative, so you can install the latest Update by itself.

Yes. Updates always require a full reinstall, as they do not perform patch updating (hotfixes do, though).

Thanks. So I will install Berlin Update 1 and then if it works out OK, I will uninstall Seattle. Anybody see any flaws in my plan?
