    Some Windows 10 Enterprise users won't get Microsoft's Edge browser


    There are still a lot of unanswered questions about Windows 10, with just over a month to go before the operating system starts rolling out to some customer segments. And many of these questions involve Microsoft's Windows-as-a-Service plans.

    Just this week, thanks to Gartner Inc., I learned that some Windows 10 users won't get Microsoft's Edge ("Spartan") browser -- the new default browser for Windows 10. Customers with Windows 10 Enterprise edition won't get Edge on any machines that are on the Long Term Servicing Branch (LTSB), according to Gartner. A Microsoft spokesperson confirmed to me that this is, indeed, the case.

    The LTSB is an option available only to Windows 10 Enterprise customers. Machines on the LTSB will receive only security and hot fixes, and no new features, for ten years. LTSB is an option for customers running mission-critical or otherwise locked-down applications who cannot risk having new features and feature updates pushed to them...

    Anyone running that branch isn't going to be letting users surf the web anyways... it's for things like ATM's and Kiosks.

    Hi there.

    Gartner ??? are they STILL in business.

    Most of their predictions in the last few years have had about the same accuracy as you would have got by random guessing. I'd rather trust a "dodgy" Horse racing tipster than any predictions coming from Gartner.

    However as Mystere says that version of Windows isn't the "Normal" Enterprise version that users will get. Kiosks etc are fine for this stuff -- which have pre-loaded applications on them anyway - a typical application would be say a truck driver checking in to a warehouse for example to report arrival / departure times, purpose of visit etc.

    Cheers
