    I would like to try out the Beta and Developer version of Chrome OS.

    But right now I have it setup just the way I like (programs, notification, icon location, resolution, power setting etc).

    If I revert from the other channels back to the stable, how much of it would I need to setup again? Is it like I never left or is it like resetting a android phone were it just tosses the apps wherever and you need to set it up again.

    When you revert back to the stable channel I believe you have to do a powerwash which wipes the chromebook. You can specify what settings you want to sync in settings and after the reset they will come back. Check settings and also check https://myaccount.google.com/dashboard.

    I did a powerwash a while back and after reboot (and reconnect to wifi), all my settings, bookmarks, extentions, layout and even installed android apps came right back to where the were. hth.

    After seeing your response I decided to give it a go.
    I ended up reverting back to the stable. It remembered everything except the screen resolution, all my apps were pined back where they were supposed to be.

    Everything is nicely backed up at Google servers.

    I enjoy being on the developer channel, instead of the beta and stable as you are at the forefront of new flags that work, canary is too unstable.
