    Windows 10 has a few Editions, Home/Core, Pro, Educational, Enterprise, N and KN that I know of. The N Edition is for EU and the KN is for South Korea, they are different because of localized/legal conditions in EU and SK, mostly eliminating applications that may infringe upon use of third-party software such as for multimedia.

    Enterprise showing RTM Core, doesn't sound right? Was that via slmgr.vbs/dli? On this PC it shows as Professional edition retail. On my laptop I get Professional Workstation edition, retail. I don't currently have Enterprise installed to check it. How did your son's PC end up on Enterprise, is it his work PC?
    My assumption that Core = Home is based on the fact that Windows 8 and 8.1 have Core and Pro editions. Then in Windows 10 they changed it to Home and Pro etc. They renamed Core to Home. That's my take on it.

    This is what I get for Enterprise. I did a change product key and entered the generic key. Enterprise was originally activated on this PC with my MSDN MAK key and received a Digital License in the process.

    Hi it is his work PC for school, he started with ICT Studie.
    But i bought it i could choose between professional and enterprise, so i thought why not then he can eventually do more and try things when he is further with his studie.
