"I have Core1 downloaded and want to install it asap but I would like to know how easy it will be to upgrade to Core 2 ?"

I think that it is easier to install Core2 as a new install than to upgrade from Core 1 to Core 2. So I suggest that you set up enough partitions to install Core 1 and Core 2 as separate systems in additon to whatever you are running now. Install Core 1 now (asap). Then later install Core 2 and triple boot Core 1, Core 2, and your current OS until Core 2 is stable. Once Core 2 is stable you can move your data into the Core 2 system and start deleting the older operating systems.

Yes, it is easy. You make sure that both partitions are mounted and then it is the same as transfering files anywhere else in the file tree.
