Saturday Tech Bits

LTSB does not do feature updates. It is supported with incident calls for 5 years (which we never use), and security updates for 10 years. (So for us, until 2026)

So, Cortana, Edge, etc. are off by default / and some not installable (Edge), because those are considered to require feature updates.

LTSB is Windows 10 without most of the bullshit. It's intention is for Enterprises not have jolting changes that may break applications (especially legacy applications)... of which we have one that is very sensitive to change and took us months to get working properly in Windows 10. So, imagine potentially having to go through months of work every 6 months. Not a good thing.

That said... one still has to lock it down with group policies and other tweaks during image creation in order to reasonably stop it from phoning home all the time.
