    I have Windows 11 ARM installed as a VM on Parallels on my Mac, and also Windows 11 (Intel) installed on my Surface Go 2. Both devices received the Windows 11 KB5006674 update today. My Windows 11 ARM build is now 22000.258.

    So it looks like we of the ARM persuasion are indeed getting updates from Microsoft!

    Thank you, Mark.
    I can confirm that the update and also .NET Update KB5005537 installed in my non-Insider VM. While it was interesting to get updates months ahead of regular Windows users in the Dev Channel I am glad to be a regular Windows user myself again.

    When I select System>about, under "Windows specifications" it shows:
    "Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22000.258.0"
    Does this mean that I am a "regular Windows user" now?

    Yes, if you have left the Insider Program and got this update.

    • On the windows 11 download page if you click the + next to "privacy" you can select "more download options".
    • You can then click the link which says "Visit the Windows Insider site to download Insider Preview builds"
    • After then signing in with your insider account details, there is a link on the right hand side of the page which says "Windows 11 on ARM Insider Preview"
