    I am going to try Windows 10. My system is old. Core 2 Duo from 2010 with integrated graphics.
    Should i go with LTSB 2016 or LTSC 2019. I tried Win 10 Home. Big mistake. After 24 hours i got rid of it.
    I tried LTSB 2016. I cannot remember why i got rid of it.

    Windows 7.
    Technically, you could run either LTSB 2016 or LTSC, but windows 10 for this machine is a bad idea imo.

    Intel core 2 Duo E8400 @3GHz. Lenovo ThinkCentre Slim Desktop with 8 GB Ram. 2 sticks 4 GB. I have Win 8.1 and happy with it. Just thinking of trying LTSB/LTSC.

    8.1 is supported to 2022(someone correct me if i am wrong), is a damn good os and doesnt have the problems windows 10 has, inc ltsb/c. I take it the machine had 8.1 installed at the factory so it will be fully supported by them. do yourself a favour, stick with what you have got :)

    if you got rid of LTSB 2016 you got rid of the better of the two ;)
    your system specs say it will run fine on it

    The machine had Win 7 at the factory. (Win 7 sticker on the case). I bought it used and it had Win 10 Education and 2 GB ram. I wiped the drive and installed 8.1 and 4 GB ram. A month later i added another 4GB.I found out later after i downloaded the system manual that the max ram supported by motherboard is 4 GB. (2x2). I have 8 GB (2x4) and it runs fine.

    you need ssd to run win 10... i vote ltsc 2019 ...
    about ram... you need run windows 7 64 bit edition to gain support over 4gb ram .....else it will be limited...
    best os for you is windows 7 64 bit... if you ask me...

    hi dude I personally love the Windows 8.1 for a number of reasons aside its ugly hmm UI, at least on my machine I've made several comparisons using Sandra between Windows 8.1 and W10 LTSB today when I have the time I will do the same with the W10 LTSC always remembering is always the same hardware so after I tell the result ...
