Yes, that must be better than looking for adventures in registry, but old habits die hard.

I personally use a version called LTSC, supposedly it is meant to have better gaming performance, though I do prefer it as it isn't as cluttered by any means.

I wonder what actual importance your message:

has. :dubbio:

Maybe a relevant anecdotal importance. :unsure:

ONly for the record LTSC is a version of windows (Enterprise ONLY) that is not normally available outside large corporations that have Volume License agreements with MS, and has - last time I checked -  a non-trivial cost per license.

On other news, my Aston Martin Vanquish :w00t: handles much better than most Fiat Panda's I see around ... :whistle:

LTSC is far less I/O intensive than regular Home/Pro editions of Windows 10 due to the lack of UWP apps installing and updating themselves, as well as a reduction in telemetry. Thus, LTSC is far more usable than the latter two OOB, especially on 5400/7200 rpm HDDs.

But I think you can get the same experience from Windows Server as that also lacks the UWP junk, has a far smaller storage/RAM footprint by default, and doesn't require enterprise licensing.

My father had grown so unsatisfied with Windows 10 that it was finally replaced by Ubuntu this week, mostly due to the I/O problems. It should no longer be licenced for PCs with only HDDs, as it's basically equivalent to Vista with 512 MB of RAM. And that Vista Ready nonsense went nowhere quickly...

LTSC is not optimal for modern gaming hardware, specifically due to the fact that it is so far behind in build numbers. This is a problem for video cards and their drivers, as well as some other situations. I do work with LTSC, where 1809 is the latest build. There are other compatibility issues in general between video cards, software and CPUs with retail Windows builds, and the LTSC SKUs share these problems.
