  1. that’s odd… yesterday i checked my Windows 11 build number and it was 22000.194 (the preview release or RTM) but this morning, when i checked new updates, the same update, with the same installed date changed form 194 to 22000.100 Production Release.
    so, there was no update, and i get it, but how come they just changed the build number of a compilation and pass it for another one?

  2. I have installed preview build on VM which shows build 22000.194
    Today I downloaded and installed released version which also shows build number as 22000.194

    Does it means my preview VM is automatically get converted into Production build?
