    Hello All 10'ers
    A year or so ago I removed 10 and installed Linux.
    As I use G-Drive frequently, and often editing .docs, the Linux is just not suitable. After reading a bit in MDL10 I think the enterprise ltsb version could be something which I could go with. I do not play games at all and just install programs I use.
    Can anyone of you suggest the best way from where I am now(Opensuse)
    Thanks

    Save all your stuff to a portable hard drive, I've got images of the last 3 or 4 systems I've used
    Reformat and do a clean install
    alternatively replace the hard drive with a older/smaller one , and do a clean install, see if you like it
    That's the route I followed , now I'm running Win7/Win10ltsb on this unit.
    For Linux I use SLAX on a flashdrive.

    just a few ideas

    thanks@tonto11
    Whats better, download an 10 ltsb(where?) or this Make a Windows 10 "1703 LTSB" ISO. For the later, could I download a w10 ent. iso to a win 8.1 machine and create the ltsb

    It's best that you download the actual Windows Enterprise LTSB. The thread you quoted does not make a real LTSB edition, all it does is hack away stuff from regular Enterprise edition, which will cause problems down the line.

    Not sure this will work on Opensuse, but It's what I did to list my Ubuntu packages. You can then use the listing to reinstall the same packages on a new installation.

    While I have rolled my own a few times I now prefer to do clean installs from clean sources
    GOD666 has the right idea, use a link from this forum whenever possible.
    I got mine from WZOR last August, about 3 months before it was officially released

    Yes. :)

    You can, of course, dual-boot Windows with Linux if you want too. I too use OpenSuse alongside Windows LTSB. You'll just need to install Windows 1st (it is easier that way). Once that is done, you can install Linux on another partition or drive.

    Thanks guys :)
    The W 10 LTSB is working very well. One or two more tweaks and then there is nothing to doo;)
