And the only way to get the LTSB is with an Enterprise licence?
I'm not a volume buyer, but I think MS allowed single user (not device) licences to be sold as subscriptions via their Cloud Service Provider platform, info from e.g. here. I could then subscribe to this W10 via a Microsoft Partner, e.g. a UK partner, a US partner.
As the article states there are two options, E3 and E5 with E5 having the Defender ATP you mentioned.
I have no idea what I'm talking about in terms of security and PCs generally. I mainly browse the internet, buy stuff on Amazon etc., do some non-commercially sensitive statistics and science (academia type work). I have multi layered approach to backing up work (2 physical locations, 2 cloud accounts - consumer email addresses - with no machine having access to both accounts). Is there a good reason to get the E5 Defender ATP edition?
I don't mind spending $10 to get this set up, but I really don't want to waste another afternoon/evening or longer trying to set up a workable IT solution.
Once again: my aim is to install a secure version of W10 that is the 1511 build, but the LTSB Enterprise version of 1511 as this is the last eye friendly version that is secure. Are there any reasons why I shouldn't try the Cloud Service Provider route? Are there any questions worth researching before I do commit? Any other options?
Thanks - I'm a PC user not at all an expert so welcome help.
