Well you certainly won't get an RTM key. As for stop working it will just go into a reduced functioanlity mode and you won't be able to do much (browse the web is about it really)

You will be able to upgrade from RC1 and RC2 to the retail version (available Jan 30th).

Windows Vista RC1 & RC2 are time-limited, pre-release software that will expire on June 1, 2007.

When you purchase a retail version, you'll get a new key which will be used to upgrade your release candidate.
