Jeremy from Moorpark, CA
Windows 10

Jeremy is currently running Windows 10 Creators Update as a beta called Redstone 4. It's probably the least reliable build because it's a build that won't be shipped for six more months. Redstone 3 will be a better beta build because it's going to ship any time now. It's better to install that one. That's why they have public betas: to get enthusiasts to shake out all the bugs. But the farther off a beta is, the more unreliable it will be.
