I recommend running any version of windows in a vm. It's so convenient to roll it back to a working version when it porks itself.If you have a second PC or a VM to tinker with it, it's always nice to see what MS is planning or trying. If you lack that curiosity then there's nothing in it for you.
If you are NOT a corporate IT administrator, but a [H] type home user, is there any real benefit to running these pre-releases?
Windows under esxi is the best windows.When I started using my windows only once a week or less on average, I started to be a happy windows user. Almost zero problems with it

Zeoclang For me, I just have too much on my plate to deal with unplanned systems issues. When I rebuild my rig, that's a planned issue and I expect to trouble-shoot the new system, tweak it, etc. But once done, it's done.There was a time when I liked playing with pre-releases and betas and showing them off to friends. Now, I just want everything to work.
not an admin but thats why i do it, to stay on top of changes and potential problems. and for all the years ive been doing it, since xp beta, ive only had a few minor issues that were always resolved with the next release.If you're administering a bunch of windows machines, or developing for windows, it's nice to run on pre-releases so you get heads up about what's broken, and maybe can push Microsoft to fix things before release. Or at least have workarounds in your stuff ahead of time
