I'm looking to replace my daily driver of Win 7 ESU (since that party's over.) I don't expect to tick every box below, but these are some of the criteria: In general, a stripped-down version of Win 10, with a reasonably low resource footprint. The option to disable or uninstall various stock MS components (along with the usual spyware/telemetry bloat, etc.) Key example: Windows Defender. The option to exclusively apply security updates, and skip non-security updates. The option to also selectively apply non-security/"feature" updates, preferably without having to do a clean reinstall. Full compatibility/support for WSL. That's led me to look at Enterprise, Enterprise LTSC, IoT Enterprise, Education, and Pro. (I'm also seriously considering Linux, but let's not debate it here.) Enterprise LTSC is attractive, but it sounds like a clean install is advised/required when upgrading to future LTSC versions, and it may be overly minimalist for my needs anyway. So maybe regular Enterprise is the way to go? Thanks in advance for any help narrowing this down. I'd also welcome hearing the reasons for your suggestions.
