We have been waiting a long time for this - both versions are the same, so it is worth doing it now.

Probably the next release will be without this possibility!

This is probably the last release in which you will be able to downgrade the channel to Beta - without a clean installation of Windows!

Please I refuse to believe this. Please tell it's not the last one. I fell in the trap today without knowing anything about this. @Andrzej1 

Does this mean there won't be ANY possibility in the future to switch again? Like, nothing at all?
I know, maybe we're talking about years of waiting. I'm done.
Probably not -> Microsoft for a year from the release of Windows11 now did it, only in Windows10 the switch worked all the time
