    Win server 2016 has the same UI as LTSB/Enterprise S 2016. But the former is already available while the latter is not.

    No need to install, just mount the hive... 30 sec per installation

    According to the blog post about srv 2016 they still call it LTSB, but could be a mistake of the blog author.

    Everyone knows MS is absolute rubbish at branding, so who knows what the next version will be called? Their divisions (sales, support etc.) are often so terribly confused about their own product names and available versions it's hilarious (and pathetic).

    With the arrival of dark mode for Modern calculator, for the first time I am thinking that this win32 calculator has been made redundant.

    I don't agree some metroish elements may be eye pleasant, but on something like a calculator or a phone dialer some level of skeuomorphism is just mandatory for a pleasant and practical use.

    As written before, you can still adjust these 2016er Version LTSB well.
    can v5.2 By MSMG ToolKit is wonderfully remove the "Windows Kompomemten All".
    No problems and man's remaining superfluous apps going.

    What's that has anything to do with Win32Calc?

    It depends... I didn't check out the Win32 one lately, but compared to the UWP one it looks a little cheesy because it doesn't match the style of the overall OS anymore; it still looks like the Aero theme from the Windows 7 days. Personally, I don't mind using the new one, and I'm not really a fan of UWP apps.

    The Windows 7 calculator sucks. The new Windows 10 calculator is totally awesome.

    I'm on Enterprise x64, build 14393.105 and used the latest abbodi's 14393 x64 Win32 calculator packages with installer.
    I can confirm that it installed well, but when I try to run the calculator nothing happens.
    Any solution ?
