IMO, there is no normal Windows 11 as yet. Technically, the only current Windows 11 versions available are for "Insiders" before it is RTM sometime in the future. As the original post stated "coming soon to Windows Insiders." so if you are on one of the builds, you will receive it in a future update. Well, heres hoping, anyway.

Think so, even those who have installed Windows 11 directly from the uupdump, unless they are registered as insiders in Windows 11, these app-updates are not available

Still have the 'old' version and to be honest. I doubt I'll use the new one any more than the old one,, and that's next to never.

Correct.

Preview apps, in other words test versions of Microsoft Store apps, are and will be offered only for computers which have joined the Windows Insider program. Good examples are the current previews of the Microsoft Store app itself, and preview of new Snipping Tool. You can clean install latest Insider build 22000.132, but you only get those app previews after joining Insider program.

Clean installing dev / beta channel Windows 11 does not reguire computer to be opted in to Insider program. To some extent, you will even get Insider build upgrades without joining Insider program.

Trying to explain that "to some extent": Latest Windows 11 build at the moment of writing this is 22000.132, where 22000 is the main build (version) and 132 is the Service Pack Build. Until now, Windows 11 has got all its upgrades as Cumulative Updates, which only change the Service Pack Build (highlighted yellow in next screenshot). As Windows Update works normally in Windows 11 regardless if the computer has joined Insider program or not, as long as upgrades will be given as Cumulative Updates, you can upgrade your Windows 11:

Build 22000.132.jpg

As soon as the main build / version (green highlight in screenshot) changes, a computer not joined Insider program will no longer get new builds.

Short version: You can use Windows 11 Insider builds without joining the Insider program. However, if you want to get new Windows 11 versions and Store app previews, you must join.

When you compare Microsoft's paint app with totally free alternative such as Paint.net or Gimp they would have been better advised to dump it years ago - and this looks like another Child's toy of an app - and by child I'm meaning Pre-schoolers
