Would you say the 1904 update is stable enough to roll out to a Dev machine?

I'm playing with the thought to migrate to wsl2, but it not being GA as of yet, I'm kind of hesitant to put a Dev machine (especially of the surface line) into the fast ring/insider preview.

Raphael, I've had a good experience on the "Slow Ring" of the Insider program. Currently on 19041.329. I use my machine mostly for dev and gaming. Though, it's not a Surface.

Thank you kindly for the reply. Guess I'll give it a shot on a non-essential system first, before I try to migrate my surface. I really don't want to brick this wonderful piece of tech but the last few big W10 updates had really stupid bugs..
WSL2 just promises too much productivity for me to wait another half year for GA.
