Okay, moved this post to start a new thread. As of Oct 2015, Windows 10 Home version is not ideal for Pro Audio but this is also based on my needs to be off the grid as I have a studio in a remote area that is not capable of high speed internet access. See the various versions: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_10_editions Windows 10 Home is a total PITA, always updating your system regardless of what apps and personal settings you "try" to disable. I have both the Professional and Home Pro Versions and Professional seems to be much better. Now that I am more familiar with it, for the longest time I was confused why my Home Version (family computer) kept defaulting back to the original install settings. Be warned, you cannot turn a lot of applications off in the Home Edition. Thus, the Home edition would appear to be horrible for pro audio, if not for everything because its always calling back to Microsoft for updates and stupid apps that I would never use. It is however, quick and appears to run really well for Samplitude, which is my DAW of choice. So, I have tested both versions and much prefer the Professional Edition. Looking at the various current Windows 10 versions, Windows 10 Enterprise 2015 LTSB might be the better choice for Pro Audio because its stripped down, thus, doesn't have all the APP crap calling back to Microsoft. Maybe someone can chime in and expand on this?
