Closing words

Change is always good unless your system or work is somehow affected negatively. Therefore, we suggest that you do try out this preview release, but not in a production environment. Stable versions of PowerShell are best recommended for production environments as they do not have the glitches a preview release may have.

PowerShell Preview releases are best suited for performing tests, and to check whether your automation or script will be compatible with the newer versions of the command-line shell.
