    I cannot wait for this release. I've had enough of Windows 10 Home.

    Actually a server 2019 lite edition may be better.

    - no need to go to the trouble of upgrading every 6 months - LTSC/LTSB has 10 years of support, you can use that version safely until your computer naturally decomposes :))
    - why would one waste time de-linting the system every 6 months when there is a "clean" version from the factory?
    - from version to version there is new stuff to track and remove.
    - windows updates sometimes fails to install on a heavily tweaked system.
    - i could go on and on...

    LTSC is a version for ones that need functionality and stability over bells and whistles

    Huh? I'm shocked at the lack of knowledege here from seasoned guru's.. blocking updates is mandatory! Both from a driver and "well-being" perspective. Take control!

    "firewall control" doesn't solve the other issues in my previous post.

    Application level firewall is needed on any version / edition of windows to prevent possible data exfiltration, security and for more control.
    You seem to favor chopping off features in consumer editions of windows instead of looking at the advantages of LTSB/C edition.

    I want a certified Win10 non-bloat version designed for uptime and reliability. The appeal of no unstable updates or features on a very reliable OS is what attracted me to LTSB years ago. Driver wise, I always default to the manufactor (i.e Nvidia, AMD etc) and not MS. To each their own I suppose.

    No. You are wrong on so many levels... I give up.

    I agree with you and LTSB/LTSC is great for those reasons.

    I'm in a category that is in high minority, using my gaming machine offline with no connection to the internet whatsoever (literally unheard of these days)
    No version of Windows 10 will ever nag me about anything so it doesn't matter if I choose LTSB/LTSC or regular Windows 10.

    When I used to run Windows 10 on my laptop before switching to Linux Ubuntu LTS, I used to run the LTSB version.

    I'll say that the LTSB/LTSC versions is great for online use, at least they're somewhat safe.

    1. LTSC receives only Security Updates, no Feature Updates will ever be installed through Windows Update - this means that your settings and tweaks will never get resetted/erased. It's also the reason why LTSC is absolutely the best base for any visual modifications (theme patchers, etc). Security Updates are actually good thing because they fix vulnerabilities in the NT kernel, etc.

    2. LTSC is originally chopped by Microsoft, so you don't have to manually remove all the UWP apps, some of the UWP apps in Consumer Editions are deeply integrated into the OS and it's hard to trace leftovers and other junk after removing them - most guides and tools to remove UWP apps are outdated, so garbage leftovers are still present in the OS after you remove them.

    3. LTSC has Win32 API replacements for some of the missing UWP apps, for example there is Win32 API version of "Calculator" from Windows 7, which is missing in Home/Pro SKUs of Windows 10, so you don't have to bring it back manually.
