    Hi! I'd like to know what's (or at least, what you think is) the best Windows 10 version for gaming aspects (performance on top of the list). I'm using Win 10 LTSB at the moment (because of the removed s**t), but since I'm gonna clean install I was wondering if there's anything better. Thanks.

    Not much difference, just select the one you like the most.

    I use the Pro Education, no big differences comparing to Pro or other editions.

    1803 is actually stable after a few Updates, but i don't recommend 1809 for gaming, not yet.

    with the updates and upgrades in the next few weeks I would wait for the smoke to clear and the bugs exposed before making any changes right now and having to reinstall if what you got working now works ok leave it alone for a bit !

    I'm a gamer, i use the latest Windows 10, 1809. Works perfectly fine, no problems to report so far. Neither did i have any issues with 1803. I've tried LTSB, haven't had any performance gains with it. Edition really won't matter. More up to GPU vendors drivers.

    Edit: Just adding that of course an OS can have impact on gaming, i did have issues with 1709, but 1803 and 1809 are stable for me.

    Glad to hear gaming works good on 1809 because that's exactly what I want to hear!
    I'm almost ready to migrate to 1809 and most people have had good results with it so I'm feeling pretty confident with updating from 1803.

    Well, I'm using LTSB primarily bacause it doesn't have al lot of the s**t contained in the Pro/Home versions. Dunno if all the crap can also be removed on those versions.

    It can most certainly be removed quite easily with Powershell commands and I find these commands better since the output is in a GUI grid instead:

    Get-AppxPackage | Out-GridView -Passthru | Remove-AppXPackage

    Get-AppxProvisionedPackage -Online | Out-GridView -PassThru | Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage -Online

    This will display a grid of all installed apps and you can select the apps you want to remove from the displayed list and click OK. Reboot.

    It won't improve performance when you remove anything. It will only destabilize the install.

    Oh, it's not for improving the performance. Is just that I don't use cortana, the windows store, etc. and I don't like having the other bloatware and tracking things on my OS.

    Is it worth tho? Has the Pro version something useful over the LTSB one?

    As far as I know Education and Enterprise have more gpedit.msc options and probably more settings than Home/Pro but that's basically it.

    So my best bet is to not change and stay on the LTSB (just clean install, since I need it) until LTSC gets realeased, right?

    If you like LTSB and feel you don't want to mess around with Powershell commands then yeah wait for LTSC to be released.

    It will be debloated from start just like LTSB were, so no debloat actions will be needed.

    And that's why i use Education and Enterprise editions, but in terms of performance they're all the same.

    That's a good question, but honestly, people should know the why and how to use it if they care for privacy or want to make customization's to their OS install.

    There is quite a lot that can be accomplished with gpedit.msc, even the basic user should have some basic knowledge of gpedit.msc

    Well that's how I feel anyway and I'm a gamer.

    I'd stay right there until LTSC 2019 (or whatever they decide to call it) comes out in what, any day now? I would not touch any of the other intrusive, naggy, spammy, adware infested, stinking, bloated versions, home, pro, server, enterprise, none of them, with a 100 foot pole. When that becomes the only choice, I will go back to 7, even XP if I had to, or just dump it and go full on Linux...which I would love to do anyway, but...games and video/music recording software.../wheeps
