    this is a good decission, as long as the newer builds are running flawless and without problem. There's no need to keep so many different builds of the same os. Just lead to confussion.
    amen.

    The need is for Microsoft's business and enterprise customers (and that's where the money is).

    Long-term Servicing Branch

    Specialized systems—such as PCs that control medical equipment, point-of-sale systems, and ATMs—often require a longer servicing option because of their purpose. These devices typically perform a single important task and don’t need feature updates as frequently as other devices in the organization...

    Microsoft never publishes feature updates through Windows Update on devices that run Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB. Instead, it typically offers new LTSB releases every 2–3 years, and organizations can choose to install them as in-place upgrades or even skip releases over a 10-year life cycle.

    And yet here we are on 27th June, with another cumulative update for 1507 just coming out.

    Cumulative Update KB4032695 Windows 10 v1507 Build 10240.17446 - Windows 10 Forums

    With the last one (earlier this month) I installed a VM with regular 10240 Pro to see what happened and sure enough the Cumulative update got installed with no special actions on my part and no need to be on LTSB or similar.

    So have Microsoft abandoned (or at least postponed) this end of support?
