Which WINDOWS 10 Enterprise to deploy

I am using SCCM to deploy my OS and patch work.  Currently I am on W7 environment and I am looking to start testing W10 deployments.  I have MS VL with SA.  

I will be deploying W10 Enterprise and want to know would you use LTSB or CB for the OS?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

How often do you want "upgrades" of Windows 10?  the channels determine how frequently you get major updates.  There's a ton of information on them... which you choose depends on which makes the most sense for your business.

This is definitely a case-by-case basis as Lee already covered. With that said, I consider LTSB to be a niche use for specialty needs. In *most* cases I would recommend deploying the standard image and using the various update settings or a patch management solution to determine which channel/branch is deployed to machines at any given time.  So that'd neither be LTSB or CB, but what MS used to call CBB, now called Semi-Annual Channel.

Ok.

We are a legal firm with very standard needs (Office suite, PDF's, Internet).  With that I feel that there is not much need for the feature packs like Creative Edition, but I do want to make sure that the system is updated for patch vulnerability.  

So if I go with the CBB model what product does this fall under WSUS?
