    For all those users who like LTSB N, what's the point in it? Wouldn't Windows 7 provide you with better application support?

    What's the point of the app store when I'm not going to use it? I mean, I'm not some f**king retard new to Windows who thinks the only way I can get a program through my computer is through the store.

    What's the point of windows media player when I'll always use my own program (MPC-HC) to play movies and music?

    No need to use bad language!
    The OP asks what's the point? One could stick to w7 N and I have to agree.
    I suggest you reread his post...your reply is off...

    Just read the dedicated thread and answer yourself

    Why not XP or Win2k, then?

    Lightweigth!!

    I'm just installing the 32bit now on my Laptop and will after that cerate an WinToUSB (after stripping some more apps) for to use as Service Drives in my own business! The plain Windows 10 will only have those apps it really will need and the 3.party apps we need for our work. It will be even better, and faster too (I believe) than the normal Version. If all runs well, I'll install again clean on my Laptop as 64bit for to use on the laptop too!

    One more, it will also be interesting if WinToUSB 2.3 (use till now 2.2Beta!) will also create an activated drive direectly or I need to activate again?! Let see!!

    who thinks that? never seen this in any ltsb thread. ltsb edition is just about no mobile stuff (store,apps, cortana) just pure windows, like back in the day with windows 7. the main ltsb thread even mention how to disable most of the stuff in the first post. so i really don't know how you come to this conclusion that anyone things this version is a "spying free" version. but apperently you think you are safe on windows 7 or 8 too? your're not.
    if you want to be safe, get linux but yes everyone knows that is no alternative to windows.

    btw im not mad, i just had enough of people hearing some stuff and then talking bulls**t.
    it's ok don't use it but then don't use any other version of windows too.

    I installed LTSB N because I prefer W10 without media player and edge /Internet explorer.
    That's good enough for me whether the tweak to disable telemetry / phone home/ spying..
    AFAIK if there is security update, anytime Ms can upload new fix/security update to overcome the tweak anyway.

    Even with the tweak to disable updates. And as soon as one manually does an update one re-tweaks to disable them again ?

    There's little difference between LTSB and LTSB N. N version seems to just have the codecs and dvdplay stuff removed. Neither of them have windows apps.
    Why use this over win7? Well it depends what programs you're running. If all you run are old games or programs, there is no point.

    If you have an 8core processor, fast ssd, and want to run dx12 games, then LTSB is obviously preferred.

    We have this argument every time they make a new OS. PPL with old hardware say "but it's a lot slower on my old programs"
    It's not meant for old hardware or old programs. It's meant for current hardware and current programs.

    Murphy, no.

    There is more than one point.

    Privacy aside, w8 and w10, have a lot of small and not so small things vastly improved over w7.

    First of all, boot speed and general responsiveness. W10 is way faster than W7

    Then a lot of classic desktop improvements: way better command prompt, scroll of the inactive windows (finally !), iso mounter, better vhd mounter, command and ps prompt here (it was about time!), UP button, and so on.

    Network improvements, say virtual wifi and tethering usable from the GUI, metered connections integrated on (and managed by) the system and so on.

    A "little" detail that I'm sure many people missed: the basic MS display adapter isn't so basic anymore.

    So many old PC, built on the XP era, and out of luck because the lack of Vista or Seven drivers will work reasonably well with 8/8.1/10, and will be capable even of some basic 2D and 3D acceleration.

    Hybrid boot: sometime is an annoyance, but often is a great improvement on boot and shutdown.

    Back to privacy, although w10, as is, is pretty scary, W7 isn't surely safe, who don trust MS should use a good linux distro, not W7 over W10

    And I can continue
