Difference Between Windows 10 Home Pro and Windows Enterprise

Windows 10 is my favorite OS, why? firstable because it is the most widely used operating system, so for example application or game developers will likely target Windows as their target user because it has big users. So Windows has lots of programs that sometimes other OSes don't.

That the main reason, the second reason is, because i've been using Windows as my main Os for very long time, along the way i learn how to customize the Os (not really customizing the core part, because unlike linux, windows is very much commercialized, you get what microsoft give).

By customize i mean just deliberately keep programs that only useful for me, remove if they are just consuming my computer resources. So now I have almost full control over my computer.

Not to be bragging, but i know many aspects of window OS, like what is services, command lines, etc. I don’t really know that much, but enough for me to stick to the OS.

There are three main branches of Windows 10, the Windows home, professional and enterprise. Windows home is for regular users, profesional is probably for someone like software or game developer, and the enterprise i believe it is for running windows as a web server or something.

Because of that different user target, Windows is divided into three different branches, and here’s a comparison table for the difference between Windows Home (H), Professional (P), Professional Workstation (PW) and Enterprise (E).

There’s some sub branches inside home, pro or enterprise. There’s one called Windows for education, which is between pro and enterprise, I don't know the details though.

On the enterprise version, there's a very stable Windows branch called Windows 10 LTSB, it is the most stable branch of Windows, which they disabled the update feature. So for stabilization purposes, the LTSB will not receive any update for a very long period of time, because software updates usually introduce new bugs.

As per my understanding, there is no difference in the core level of windows, the difference is just Enterprise has more programs than pro, and pro has more programs than home, i think you shouldn't worry in terms of security or performances because they are using the same core.
