Long Term Servicing Branch “LTSB” Is a Microsoft Windows 10 build that is designed to provide a standard stability around each release. Examples to be used for HVAC, POS, Kiosk, security systems.

Pros:
  • Not required to feature patch, only security
  • Each version supported for a decade
  • Less yearly feature compatibility testing
  • Stability

    Cons:
  • You do not initially get Edge browser or Modern apps, they must be installed separately or as needed.
  • Not required to patch
  • Each version supported for a decade
  • Does not receive updates for new features
  • Does not support adding a Microsoft Intune Subscription, which prevents the use of:
  • Intune in a hybrid mobile device management (MDM) configuration
  • On-premises MDM
  • Does not support use of the Windows 10 Servicing Dashboard, Servicing Plans, and does not support Windows 10 Current Branch (CB) and Current Branch for Business (CBB)
  • Does not support future releases of Windows 10 LTSB and Windows Server
  • Does not support Asset Intelligence
  • Does not support cloud-based distribution points
  • Does not support Exchange Online as an Exchange Connector
  • Does not support any prerelease features
  • Risk of version incompatibility due to security only patching
  • More effort in OS upgrade testing due to feature parity misalignment
  • Each version will only support most recent silicon chipset and not past chipsets, so new computer purchases would not have support for current organization build if it is not the current LTSB build from Microsoft.
