    Not trying to bump a older thread, but where are people getting their legitimate Windows 10 LTSC keys from? I saw that newegg sells an upgrade license, but I'm not sure if those will work for a new installation.

    Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB or LTSC is not better than Windows 10 Pro 1809. I don't care what anyone says.

    And what exactly are you using to support your claim?

    No, because they are actually worse than standard PRO.

    I've been on the LTSB and it had tons of compatibility issues with games and applications. I don't think they're a solution for the home user / gamer. I'd rather go back to Win7 than try LTSB again.

    Every single game I install works flawlessly on LTSB. Unless you're trying to use the Windows Store (which you shouldnt anyway it doesn't use it and that's the point of LTSB) there shouldn't be an issue. Every application I use for home works great on it too.

    Well, that's all and good, they didn't work flawlessly for me, I've had so many issues with 10 LTSB that it was only comparable to the time when I installed Wndows 2000 beta back in 99.

    I couldn't go to the windows store if I wanted to.and I'm running PRO. Same goes for cortana, both are eviscerated beyond repair, the only way I could get back either is by doing a fresh install.

    User error?
    What specifically doesn't work?

    You must be doing it wrong! I'm sick of that excuse.

    No I Don't remember what were the exact software that had problems. It was over 2 years ago. I don't remember what apps I used 2 months ago. Clearly if it worked well I wouldn't have switched to the regular PRO version. Plus if it was an user error, then I'd have the exact same problems regardless of the windows version wouldn't I? Or you know of some special procedure that is necessary for apps to work under LTSB W10? I don't think so.

    I didn’t have a great experience with it either. I had compatibility issues with some Logitech drivers and my Drobo’s software. I had issues with a game called Squad that I play where the in game voip just didn’t work. I had some other random issues with software not working with the current version (1709 right now I think).

    I wanted it to work for me really bad. It was a good compromise between 7 and 10 for me. I just couldn’t work around some of the compatibility stuff. I’m bouncing between 10, 7, and a few Linux distros to see what’s going to end up working best for me.

    Doesn't stop it from being a legitimate reason.

    I've been running on the 2015 LTSB (accidentally specified the wrong ISO during install) for about 14 months.

    I've had three minor issues.

    1. NVSurround (which is essentially a broken legacy feature anyhow)
    2. Trillian randomly crashing
    3. TeamViewer randomly crashing

    While it COULD be a compat issue with my version of Windows, it could also simply be flaky behavior in those apps too.
    In the end, none of them are serious enough to warrant migrating to a new install of Pro or LTSB 2016.

    HOWEVER, when LTSB 2019 comes out, I will (probably) wind up upgrading (probably not RIGHT AWAY), as the 2015 version will start aging out...

    Current LTSC (it's no longer LTSB) is 1809, previous was 1607. So you're probably not likely to see another one until 2020.

    Trillian? Seriously? My god man, get with the times and use something better - just for the record, it's always been a rather crash-happy app over the years, from what I've been told. :D

    When I did some test installs with LTSB (the trial version), the only thing that didn't work for me was of course the Windows Store but I was able to install that - and Edge, actually - and it worked without any issues at all.

    Whenever I see people say there's some crippling difference between Windows desktop and server OS versions with respect to application/program support, I can't ever seem to replicate the issues those people have - shit just works, 'yo, can't say much more than that.
