    I think W10 Enterprise 2016 LTSB (most stripped version AFAIK) :)

    You would not like LTSB. IT is missing most everything that makes W10 a pleasure to use. The LTSB platform is only meant for production environments in industry. Trust me you would not be happy. Besides, Pro, Home, etc. run very very well on low powered computers.

    I have picked Home for this very reason. It is not only safer, but also runs less services, DLLs and etc, so obviously it should be lighter in overall performance.

    It is a nice test, but benchmarks are hardly good for a real life comparison, since benchmarks run like a game and Windows prioritizes a single process in any version. Testing should include multitasking.

    It's just to compare the nrs. i didn't publish the test results because the install couldn't even get uptodate like the others tested.

    No tweak OS: Windows 10 Enterprise 2016 LTSB
    Removing bloatware with MSMG Toolkit or NTLite: Anyone

    All editions are very similar even with theoretically less features since deactivated features like Hyper-V (Single Language edition), Group Policy editor, etc, do not run in the background by default. A part of the extra services in the most complete versions is in manual mode so they are only executed when the feature is used. Comparing all of them the size of the image is very similar so the difference consists in having features activated or not.

    I think the most impact on performance is Metro apps. So by removing them with MSMG/NTLite or using LTSB you're fine :)

    In real world testing, on a computer that is 7 years old, I find Windows Enterprise LTSB to work the best.

    My benchmarks are run on an intel e6420 Core2Duo 2.13 GHz 4GB ddr2 800Mhz RAM = 8 year old ;):)

    1 year difference really should not make that much of a difference, but looking at your benchmarks, I see little difference, yet in real-world outcomes of actual everyday use, I find LTBS to work best

    Only nrs will show real factual information.

    Your findings are insignificant. For example,
    26.37MPix/s vs 26.12MPix/s is only a 0.25 difference.

    In instances such as this, only real-world usage can actually truly measure the performance. For example, having Office Pro Plus 2016 run along side 4 open tabs of Google Chrome, while playing 1 movie on VLC. Something your benchmark cannot measure.

    The nrs show that all editions are more or less equal to eachother, only one was with 1.54 the lowest. As long as all tests are run on the same hardware the nrs are useful for comparison.

    Sandra showing performance score on stress mode
    liting windows would help mostly on burst mode

    if the OS is not optimized its could help fps in gaming

    LTSB is the least annoying but there is Little difference in performance between the various versions in my experience, LTSB might just have the edge.

    It is missing everything that is annoying about Windows 10!

    Possibly, get a Windows 10 Home edition and uninstall most of the in-built apps, including Cortana, for your low system to work effectively.

    Recently I bought this Acer LapTab , a 10.1-inch tablet-cum-notebook from Acer. It has just 2GB RAM with intel processor, but it runs Windows Home 10 32-bit easily.
    So with 4GB RAM , your computer should perform smoothly !

    Why would uninstalling "not loaded at boot" apps make windows run better? If it's not loaded then it doesn't use resources, just run 32bit windows, sku doesn't really matter.
