    Windows 10 Enterprise and DirectX 12?


    Hey everyone. I'm building a gaming rig and I have access to Windows 10 Enterprise through work which I can install on a home computer. However I'm wondering if DirectX 12 is included in that since Enterprise is more of a business orientated OS. I'm also wondering about updates, does Enterprise get the same updates as Pro and Home? I'm not sure if it has gotten the anniversary update yet or other major updates.

    I'm currently running 8.1 Enterprise which has always been stable for me but it doesn't have DX12 so I'm not sure if I want to install that on a new system. I did try 10 Enterprise on my Acer laptop but I was having issues with the sound and when I hit restart it would shut down or when I asked it to sleep it would shut down too or on some occasions do nothing.

    What's my best option?

    my opinion is buy win10 home, or Pro if you need the extras that are not in home
