I've never found any reason not to use the latest released version.
I do worry that one day I will not be allowed to update any further as my old hardware is deemed to be incompatible, but it's not happened yet!

Highly dependent on hardware compatibility. For example my Lenovo Y50-70 is not 100% compatible with Lastest Version of Win10 (bugs with audio control, reorder desktop icons, etc.). Win10 1607 (Aniversary) yes is compatible and I do not have those problems

 

I prefer Win8.0 but now I am testing Win10 LTSB 2016 (I managed to install the modern calculator XD). Soon I will test the Win10 LTSB 2015 ...

Reorder desktop icons bug with Win10 versions greater than 1607:

Interesting question.....

I really can't decide on a version because I genuinely think Windows 10 as being the biggest load of crap that we have had to put up with....

XP and Windows 7 were the closest that Microsoft have got to being good....but we all have different opinions on that and I respect all opinions....

Sorry, could not bring myself to picking a version....

If I may play devil's advocate for a moment:  out of fairness to Windows 10, it has gotten a bit better than the RTM release.

And I'd also like to point out that XP wasn't always the "gleaming pinnacle of perfection" that many see it as nowadays;  In fact, back in 2003-2004, I recall it was actively despised, and often criticized as being slower than the versions it replaced, namely 2000 and 98 SE (which was still pretty much 100% usable back then).  It did improve with time, however, and once SP2 came out and multi core PCs became more commonplace, XP matured quite nicely.  It would be nice if 10 would follow the same progression and actually become a mature, decent product, but so far, it hasn't....

Be that as it may, even after almost six years, I still don't like 10, and I won't use it (I actually did try for awhile, but it broke on me, and rather than going through the effort to reinstall, I decided to wipe it and install Linux in its place).  Fortunately, because my primary is Mac OS,  I don't really have a need for everything to work 100% on any older Windows, thus having the luxury to tinker with and hack up any Windows of my choosing ad infinitum :) .

any LTSB/LTSC version for me since most of my old PCs were not tested for Win10 compatibility but are able to run any of the LTSB/C releases without problems

plus LTSB 2015/2016 & LTSC 2019 get up to ten years of support

Whichever builds aren't from 2015-2017. Windows 10 literally broke almost a dozen times for me on the PC it was included on. When I used it on my Thinkpad R60 at one point, it broke one day with no way to repair itself. Didn't make a difference installing on a Dell Latitude e4310 compared to Windows 7, except java crashed for no reason using Windows 10.

The later versions are far more stable (just like Windows Vista).
