    <Brooklyn accent> Noice!

    Can someone test if they can make a lite or stripped W11 version? Similar to LTSB or LTSC? Just curious if this can be done and the performance gain or how much trash can be removed.

    Is it possible to dual boot Windows 10 and 11 with this ISO now?

    Goes to the page. Logs in with my Insider's account. Fails. Joy. Cries. Moves on.

    .

    Goes to his Windows 11 VMWare instance, boots Windows 11, logs into the insider account, downloads iso. Yay. Joy. No tears.

    Yes. It has always been possible even without the ISO.

    Win11 is extremely stable.
    I've been using it since July 2nd...not a single OS related crash or hiccup.
    I'm on build 22000.132 on an MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC, R5 5600X, GTX-770 and 32GB Timetec DDR4-3600.
    The thing 'chews' through transcoding task, gaming and everything else I've thrown at it.
    I like the look and 'feel' of it...even little things like the centrally mounted taskbar.

    UUP dump you can do up your own version of windows.

    I have clean installed the version in the article Windows 11 22000.132 and now today it is up to Windows 11 22000.160 .
    Works great and is stable.

    Shouldn’t come as a surprise, 21H2 I was supposed to be just a GUI update. And well, Windows 11 is just that, but they decided to throw in some extra effort and add a bunch of features.

    Anyone here able to actually pull a copy of this ISO? The MS insider site just keeps reloading for me after I click the download link and eventually errors out with a "site cannot be reached" message.

    I read that line and immediately thought my wife would be jealous. Then I realized she's already kinda jealous of my PC :D

    Why are people saying Win 10 isn't stable. I have been using Win10 since it was first available and to this day (touch wood) i haven't had a single crash or issue with it. So for me you can't get any more stable than Win10 already is.

    I will eventually switch over to Win11 once they release the good stuff and it's proved it's a upgrade over win10 but for now i will continue with 10 as i wouldn't ever do an upgrade install over a fresh install but that means rewriting all data on my ssd which is a serious PITA.

    Probably gonna need to reinstall all games anyway to benefit from DirectStorage and the like and this will take time to develop so not worth installing yet as you may have to reinstall again once this new tech is released.
