For many organizations, moving to the Windows 10 Current Branch twice-a-year release cycle may require signifcant change across their entire IT organziation’s process, tools, and people (e.g., IT support, client team, application owners, security team, etc.) Often, the Long Term Servicing Branch (LTSB) is seen as a possible nirvana to all of the questions that Windows 10 Current Branch raises. In this session, we discuss how LTSB has a valid role in many organizations, but clarify why the…


  1. I'd really love to see a deep-dive on how exactly LTSB is less secure than CB or CBB. This is literally the only video I can find that specifically implies LTSB is less secure because of it's lack of "feature updates", but it is not specific about what exactly that means! Does LTSB not receive security enhancements as part of the monthly update cycle? Is it only receiving Definition updates and nothing else? I support about a hundred PCs that sit inside instructor/presenter podiums, and they are used for a very narrow set of purposes (mostly PowerPoint, but occasionally a YouTube video, for example). We don't want all the shiny features and modern apps, but I can't find any specific info on security vulnerabilities to discuss with my Chief Security Officer when making this decision!

    My users don't care about the cutting edge state of the art Microsoft Operating System experience. They want stability. They want to be able to sit down in the morning, and get shit done without needing to call the helpdesk. The idea that only hospitals and industrial machinery need a stable OS is insane.
