    Would using a program like winreducer10 or ntlite help remove and keep all the crapware, apps, telemetry and not needed bs in wndows 10 for good or would windows update just slip that stuff back in?

    Use Enterprise LTSB as base and "adjust" the remaining crap (telemetry) using tools like O&O ShutUp10.

    Doesn't that just enable all Micro$ofts default settings?

    Anyways, I suggest using MSMG to rid yourself of all the crap apps. There was a slight learning curve at first with the source selection and various formats. A little reading went a long way. Next build I'm going to try is the LTSB and see how slim it really is.

    What sort of Activation does the LTSB use? Would a normal "enterprise" key do?
