Just made the ultimate Windows 10 with NTLITE.

Took 2016 Enterprise LTSB, and stripped everything out....including cortana (not just disabled... never installed), all windows reporting and telemetry, cloud host experience, one-drive, all metro apps, search, push notifications, internet explorer, edge already gone, windows updates etc. etc. etc.

The thing boots to using around 400MB of RAM, doesn't phone home, and the start menu still works! Installed Chrome since there is no web browser.

So what's the catch? I removed Windows updates. Why? Because it will break the first time one of those stupid cumulative updates tries to install.

However, that's not necessarily a bad thing. One can still get critical updates via the Microsoft catalog.

Right now I'm just using it in a virtual box on my *nix box for being able to vpn and rdp into work.

But I may eventually run it on my gaming rig if there's a point that 7 isn't supported for games anymore.
