2007 TO 2010 upgrading ?

I am presently coming to the end of my trail eval period for Project 2007. I 
definately will be purchasing "Project" full version, not upgrade, but I keep 
hearing about Project 2010 coming soon. I do not want to buy Project 2007 and 
6-8 weeks later see the release of Project 2010 and have to put out more 
money. I am looking at the Beta of 2010 and like its feel a lot which means I 
am going to want it.

So my question is: How can I proceed in order to spend the least amount of 
money and in the end be using Project 2013???? Does MS have some sort of 
program where you can get a rebate on the new version if you buy an existing 
version (2007) so close to the release of Project 2013???

Thanks

Generally, 2010 questions are best addressed in this forum:

http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/category/projectserver2010,projectprofessional2010

That being said, you'd need to talk to your MSFT sales rep for the best answer. 
 Suffice it to say that 2010 won't be out until the "first half of 2010."  

Purchasing licenses for 2007 with Software Assurance should get you the 2010 
upgrade.  Note that I heard of a deal where if you have licenses for Project 
Server 2007 and WSS, you may be able to parlay that into the upgrade to the 
2010 version of MOSS (SharePoint Enterprise) - which would save you money. 
 I am not sure if that is still happening, and who you would talk to to explore 
it, but I'd recommend talking to your licensing specialist.

And I think you don't mean 2013, but 2010?  Correct?

I think Andrew has the sane approach, software assurance plan.

Something else to consider would be to run off the 2010 Beta until it runs 
dry (I do not know of a time limit on it, but it will certainly be more than 
60 days).  I am running on Project 2010 Build 14.09.4536.1000 and I am past 
60 days, so it should continue to roll for awhile.

Of course, I would never use Beta software for a "production environment" 
without some type of fall back plan.  After all, it is beta software.

Yes, I was referring to 2010. (working numerous items simultaneously 
sometimes gets a bit ...)

In the Microsoft Business Contact Manager, it says that you can easily migrate your data into CRM. Problem is that I can find out how do you do this?
