We just want Devices for our Lifecycle that behave consistently from one day to another, and GUI changes are not consistency. It was hard enough to figure out how to turn most of the annoyances on Windows 10 off, but to have to do it repeatedly every months is just..

Just as an anecdote, I had a script why do I need a script for this that unpinned Edge from the Task bar – as it was not a normal icon but some system functionality deeply hidden that put it there.

In the end, it worked and the icon was gone – and it worked fine in or older. When we moved to , it still worked that it unpinned the icon – but now users couldn’t pin stuff to the taskbar anymore, as it was forgetting the pins after logout.

Why is simple stuff like that so hard I am currently moving all our devices up to , and when that is done, to Create one Year of overlap from one release to the next. Whenever I hear someone telling me they ” do not see how you have such a big issue” with anything, I totally get it. They don’t see it because they don’t have to work in the environment we work.

So they don’t understand it, and naturally they don’t see what the issue is. When that happens, maybe, just maybe, I’ll believe Microsoft has a clue on what is required for the enterprise. Yeah I can agree with that however the SAC version is based on the full edition. It would be cool if they did create a combo of the two where you did have the benefits of SAC but with the commercial apps like Xbox and weather removed.

But not enough demand or a market space for that type of product. I’m recommending an evaluation of LTSC for programs I’m the security manager over and I have a question that I hope the community would address.

How is the backwards compatibility of LTSC? For example, if I’m using hardware from or earlier will support the hardware?

If you are using hardware from you are in bigger trouble anyway! Regardless what the bad guys say, here is the only one truth: Windows 10 any edition only works on SSD drives! Well, because it was designed that way.

For example to supply water you have to use copper or plastic pipes. They designed for that. You cannot use paper pipes – they will melt in seconds. Same here: if you still use HDD – your Windows 10 won’t work well. It will work, but much worse than XP or Win 7. Besides, please try to understand one thing: ALL editions of Windows 10 are the same.

Missing features. And different versions. But they are the same. And all applications works regardless. Those are time wasters and tire kickers! Those are truly bad guys! Because this way they can justify their salaries by doing nothing! Including LTSE. So now you are not limited to lousy and slow IE You can enjoy new EDGE which is absolutely best browser in the world today!

And the rest? Who use Cortana? Who needs Store? This is a first thing that any Enterprise would ban and prohibit – MS Store. Because this is a big Pandora box. I hope you know why you said you are security guy? Hope this can help Interesting how we have many computers on campus all running Windows 10 various editions on regular hard drives, not SSD drives. We have a mixed pool of laptops from 8yr to brand new. We don’t have any problems running windows 10 on the older kit.

Where I have needed drivers and there aren’t any for Windows 10, I have installed them for older operating systems and these work well. As the older kit breaks, we scavenge any relevant components to fix the remaining laptops. A portion of our user base are very harsh on the laptops, so the older rugged machines handle this the best. When we have spare funds, we do put in a SSD but we haven’t found it necessary. By default the LTSC edition doesn’t have the xbox apps natively installed, however you can install them.

There is a “MultiLang App Update” release, which you can download from your microsoft account. My users like Sticky Notes, Photos and couple of the other apps. I installed them from the App Update pack without any problems. First to your question, as a general rule, yes, current version of Windows 10 work on older hardware.

If you purchased a new machine in , the current version of Windows 10, if your using MS update service, has been updated to your machine, moving it forward. That is the general principal, but as in all of life, there are footnotes in small print at the bottom of the page.

You mention devices as old as or older. There are driver support requirements that may be potential issues for you. That would be for Win10 regardless of LTSC or SAC, no difference there, We certainly updated 10’s of millions of devices in and that were at the time years old, so it was a common scenario, but again in general, its was the very old devices that had the higher rates if issues, not surprising. So its likely to install and run, but cant say for sure.

The OEM I’m pretty sure is no longer supporting it. Depending on how the device is being used, you will see perf impact. You did not give details on the use case , but sense you did call out your security manager, I do want to call out and be clear for you and other readers, The most secure option with Windows 10 will be SAC, and not LTSC.

Both get security patches each month, but SAC editions get new security features and functionality, many targeting and or addressing the latest attack strategies. LTSC is often, incorrectly thought to be the choice for secure, locked down devices, and that really is a SAC build, where we continue to innovate and advance the security capabilities of Windows, every 6 months.

New versions do get new security features, but also new flaws. What gives.. New versions not only get new security features, but also new features in general. Rather large updates could also present new vulnerabilities, this is to be expected. Ever since initially looking into rolling out W10 years ago I have ached so much to be able to just use the LTSC release and get on with it. You say that the LTSC is intended for environments where use cases and requirements don’t change over time.

My response to this is that empiraclly speaking, we simply don’t use any “features” of the OS itself to drive our organisation forward. Our business needs are met by software vendors developing applications that we simply install on our base image or run via web-apps, not by the OS itself.

Our security needs are catered for in our infrastructure itself and again by third party solutions. I’d also wager that this is what a majority of businesses need, nothing more than a simple platform on which they can build to their own requirements, not Microsoft’s. I welcome additional features in the name of security but there appears to be no allowing here for IT admins to make their choices and not have to feel like they’re being punished for it.

I’ve fought too much against changing behaviours in Windows 10 releases where I need to find new services to disable for performance reasons or where something I did in a Group Policy for one release is undone by another. I’ve got file associations being reset anytime a user moves to a new VM that are an absolute pain to manage. UWP replacements for stock Windows apps are no longer simple to manage because they’re “provisioned” on a per-user basis rather than just being “installed”.

I can’t get “Photos” for crying out loud to open an image for any user without staring at a blank window for seconds.

The classic image viewer? I could go on and on and on. It constantly feels like a battle with Windows 10 and I’m exhausted with it!

What we’d love is to be able to use LTSC as our base image, install exactly what we need and just get on. SAC goes completely against this. You say you “don’t use any OS features”?. Pretty sure this is not actually true, let me explain, and I’ll put aside for now the end user innovations and improvements that have been added, that you your users may be missing out on.

When you do replace, add HW, do you try to acquire the best performance for price at the time its acquired? If so, your taking advantage to the Windows 10 Silicon policy, where new HW is first enabled on the current version of Windows 10, and would not be supported for example on the LTSC release. Those are features that have been and are improved with each Windows 10 update. That is the stack that is currently the focus of development and testing by your vendors of choice, silicon, oem and os.

Do you stay current with firmware updates and drivers? From things like Windows Info protection to Application Guard, you have much richer tools and better capabilities to address your security needs, again while focusing on user productivity. But all that side. You can choose to use LTSC. While I explained above what it was designed for, customer still choose with version they choose to purchase and use. Certainly we did that a lot in the first releases, but that was a big focus through to respect and persist.

If and when it happens today, we want to know it and fix it. Thanks again , and let me know how I can help, with what ever version of Windows 10 you choose to run. I’m the only one managing clients in my organization, and we have thousands of clients with different needs and users. First off, we have not experienced a single issue with updates for as long as I can remember.

And, who are we to say what our users need? I have never told anyone about the my phone feature, yet I discovered many of our users were all over it. And, W10 is getting better, why stick with the old? From a management point of view, many mgmt features require the latest versions. You don’t need to prevent W10 from evolving, you need to evolve yourself. No, GPO’s are not the future, and if you miss them you are only scared of changes and improvements.

Why am I writing this? Simply because it’s clear the desktop OS is becoming less and less relevant – most of our users are just working in the cloud on whatever they have at home.

We have a few legacy apps finance, why is it always finance!? So perhaps instead of adding more and more features to Windows 10 and poo-pooing people who are using LTSC, MS should be thinking about a lightweight, easy to service, image of Windows aimed at users who spend most of their time in the web browser not the desktop OS. By the way – big kudos to the Edge team – from hating the original version I’m really liking the new Chromium-based Edge, ‘Profiles’ are invaluable.

So, you say the OS is irrelevant, all is web, Chrome book is great, and then go on to say the experience is best on desktop, Windows then Mac. Truth is, the OS does matter. The OS is the thing tieing the experiences together. Chrome OS was supposed to be a web OS, because all you need is web. But it’s not. Because, web alone is not enough. And if you do feel it is, the feel free to use web only.

But if you need the OS, then use the propper and intended OS. The LTSC was made with a particular user case in mind, and that is not user computers. How long would Windows be a thing if Windows did not evolve? Sure, for some LTSC is a must have, for most its not. If your users don’t need the OS, give them thin terminals. If they need the OS, give them the best experience. That is not LTSC. As I see it, it is my job to give them this with as little hassle as possible.

Sitting back with my feet on the desk running LTSC is not what’s best for my users. I prefer LTSC because it does not change substantially over time and precisely because of all of the things that are missing from it Edge, Microsoft Store, Cortana, OneNote, and other modern apps. Howdy, I am developer in a corporate environment.

No problems at all. I have not been hindered in anyway by LTSC. Therefore, I cannot confirm any limitations so stated in the parent article. I am very grateful that my orgnization is legally allowed to license LTSC Rich it is vastly superior to other versions and all of the more recent versions have been plagued with varying degrees of problems.

LTSC is what normal Windows 10 should be. It is extremely unfortunate that it is not readily available to all consumers as an alternative to the bloated and unstable versions they are expected to tolerate. So I installed it into my Mac Pro Bootcamp partition in early summer this year.

I am kind of dismayed by the lack of updates for what to me, appears to be a superior version of Windows One without the “Windows Store”, if I want to run it that way.

Actually, I found a script that added the store back in, so I can use most of my paid store apps. But no “Cortana”, I think the update for Cortana in was excellent, much more friendly. In my situation, I use Windows to drive workstations for Audio and Video editing, so I don’t want a lot of excess junk gobbling up resources.

Because I need every byte of memory available and I need to keep my system drive lean, as sometimes I am limited to GB partitions. I still have LTSC installed, but it has not updated to much newer than At some point, I may want to officially get this build, it is so much better for me. My question is, how exactly do I do that? And, are there any major updates coming down the pipe, I had read that one was coming in Fall I can’t remember the source for that though.

The whole purpose of LTSC is so it doesn’t update to new feature packs and removes store and other stuff you wouldn’t want in the image. If you don’t want updates in your build, turn them off. You must be a registered user to add a comment. If you’ve already registered, sign in.
