    Number 6 looks bad to me, 7 sounds good. Restore to Creators update MR Image.

    Do you have a link that shows what's different about this versus standard W10 Enterprise?

    You can ask/report any bugs there directly or mention me using @. I'll forward it to scarface. Even you can mention me on that forum as well.

    So you're not clean installing W10 Pro workstation? Aren't those come with a different build?
    Like you said some months ago, does Pro workstation feel faster than consumer version?

    Cool. My 16L13 was rolling a stock W10 Enterprise build when it went back to HID for service. I may wipe it and use this instead.

    Nope. but here are its main features:

    The value of Windows 10 Pro for Workstations is directly aligned to increase the performance and reliability of high-end PCs, with the following features:
    • ReFS (Resilient file system): ReFS provides cloud-grade resiliency for data on fault-tolerant storage spaces and manages very large volumes with ease. ReFS are designed to be resilient to data corruption, optimized for handling large data volumes, auto-correcting and more. It protects your data with integrity streams on your mirrored storage spaces. Using its integrity streams, ReFS detects when data becomes corrupt on one of the mirrored drives and uses a healthy copy of your data on the other drive to correct and protect your precious data.
    • Persistent memory: Windows 10 Pro for Workstations provides the most demanding apps and data with the performance they require with non-volatile memory modules (NVDIMM-N) hardware. NVDIMM-N enables you to read and write your files with the fastest speed possible, the speed of the computer’s main memory. Because NVDIMM-N is non-volatile memory, your files will still be there, even when you switch your workstation off.
    • Faster file sharing: Windows 10 Pro for Workstations includes a feature called SMB Direct, which supports the use of network adapters that have Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) capability. Network adapters that have RDMA can function at full speed with very low latency while using very little CPU. For applications that access large data sets on remote SMB file shares, this feature enables:
      • Increased throughput: Leverages the full throughput of high-speed networks where the network adapters coordinate the transfer of large amounts of data at line speed.
      • Low latency: Provides extremely fast responses to network requests, and, as a result, makes remote file storage feel as if it is directly attached storage.
      • Low CPU utilization Uses fewer CPU cycles when transferring data over the network, which leaves more power available to other applications running on the system.
    • Expanded hardware support: One of the top pain points expressed by our Windows Insiders was the limits on taking advantage of the raw power of their machine. Hence, we are expanding hardware support in Windows 10 Pro for Workstations. Users will now be able to run Windows 10 Pro for Workstations on devices with high-performance configurations including server grade Intel Xeon or AMD Opteron processors, with up to 4 CPUs (today limited to 2 CPUs) and add massive memory up to 6TB (today limited to 2TB).

    Wasn't asking you, brother. :p

    But this is still good information for everyone else who wants to give this version a whirl. I'll stick with Enterprise because you can turn all telemetry off from within Group Policy Editor. You still need O&O Shutup10 to disable other stuff, but at least there's a way to shut it down from the source.

    Steam: Gamers abandoning Windows 10 in huge numbers
    https://betanews.com/2017/11/03/steam-gamers-abandoning-windows-10-in-huge-numbers/

    "Microsoft has -- for the moment at least -- stopped updating its official Windows market share page, which means if you want to see how well the various flavors of Windows are doing, you have three options. StatCounter’s latest update shows Windows 10 closing in on Windows 7, while NetMarketShare’s figures have the new OS still a long way off reaching that milestone.

    The third option is Steam’s monthly user survey, which shows the state of things from the gamers’ perspective. Usually Windows 10 is by far the most popular OS but in October its share tumbled, while Windows 7’s shot up. A mistake surely? But no, it seems to be correct."

    "The latest stats from Steam show Windows 10 shedding a massive 17.38 percentage points, to give it 28.6 percent share. (The 64-bit version accounts for 28.23 percent, and the 32-bit version adds a tiny 0.37 percent).

    Meanwhile, Windows 7 has gained a whopping 21.47 percentage points in the same month, climbing to 65.46 percent (63.60 percent for the 64-bit build, and 1.86 percent for the 32-bit edition).

    You could be forgiven for thinking that Steam has made a mistake here, or that gamers are turning their backs on Windows 10 in huge numbers, but it seems likely that at least a sizable portion of the change can be attributed to China's influence.

    According to the Language section of Steam’s survey, Simplified Chinese surged 26.83 percentage points to 56.37 percent in October, while English fell 13.40 percentage points to 21.24 percent. It seems reasonable, therefore, to assume that Chinese gamers running Windows 7 are responsible for much of the shift we’re seeing here. There's no official word from Steam on this yet.

    It will be interesting to see what next month’s figures show, and whether this is a blip, or part of a larger trend."

    Exactly what Micro$haft needed. Perfect medicine. They need to take it and then change course. Same as people who discovered they have diabetes disease and need a change in their diet.
