Using beta or stable channel in W11?
I'm sticking to Beta channel, is the stable channel outside of the insider program or is that RP,

I will never again install a latest dev build and then go back to the beta channel using a reg key method I found like i wanted to in the past

If used this method described above avoids having to do a clean install but you are stuck on the current dev build and have to wait without any updates at all including new windows builds until the beta channel catch's up in build numbers, worst case no updates for up to two years.

here is the method I am referring to:
