First Beta Version of Windows 11
The first beta version of Windows 11 has been released Before that, only the most unstable version of Windows 11 was the Dev preview. Windows 11 looks more refreshing and neat with this new version.
Today, an event took place that many have been waiting for: Microsoft released the first beta version of Windows 11. Prior to that, the new Microsoft OS was distributed only in the Dev preview version - for developers - with a lot of bugs and problems. The beta version is better suited for use on consumer computers as it is more stable.
In order to install the beta version of Windows 11, you need to become a participant in the Microsoft testing program and have a computer that meets the hardware requirements to run the OS. The company has said that Windows 11 will be available from the 7th gen of Intel Chipset and MD's Zen 1 which leaves millions of computers behind, and while the transition from the developer channel to the beta testing channel usually requires a complete reinstallation of the system until it is required - for a "short period of time", as written on the Windows Insider page on Twitter, the transition from the Dev preview to the Veta version is now practically imperceptible - with one reboot.
Microsoft emphasizes that although the versions of Windows 11 published in the Beta channel are more stable than those presented in the Dev channel, they are still beta versions: with bugs, bugs, and lack of any insurance against accidental crashes."
Microsoft allows for a certain amount of time to switch from Dev channel to Beta without requiring a clean installation of the operating system. Upgrading to Windows 11 Beta is simple and safer than installing a build Dev. Warning though: Beta builds are certified by Microsoft technicians to provide an acceptable user experience, but they are not 100 % stable. You can meet bugs not yet solved, or compatibility issues with software or with drivers from dispositive and peripherals The advice is not to install it on the main computer, as you need to check if you can support it, otherwise, it's good to stay in Windows10.
