Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB 2015: the perfect edition to work and privacy
After the release of Windows 10, the Internet was published dozens of articles on how to get rid of certain components of the new operating system. But in the Arsenal is Microsoft and the version of the «dozens» (about its existence know the few users), in which there is no Store, no store apps or Cortana or Microsoft Edge. It’s called Enterprise Windows 10 Long Term Servicing Branch (LTSB, with long-term maintenance) and are designed for businesses and organizations, and not to the General public. Let’s look at the difference compared with the usual versions.
First, Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB obtains only fully tested on normal versions of security updates and corrections (i.e., to an unstable update is almost impossible), while the delivery of updates can be controlled. Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB allows you to completely disable the services associated with the telemetry and the collection of user data.
This edition of the operating system contains no Windows apps, no – Store, no Edge browser. Instead, the default is to use the classic program: Internet Explorer instead of the Edge, the Windows Media Player instead of a Groove, a normal win32 Calculator is the new app of the same name, etc. Cortana is also there, and the search box on the taskbar is used for a simple file search. However, as in all other editions the classic «control Panel» exists side by side with the new application Settings.
Enterprise LTSB is ideal for lovers of privacy and those who don’t like Windows Store applications; this version will be a great choice if you missed «the eight» and not adapted to the new philosophy of Windows, or if you just need a modern OS to a working machine.
