Yes you would have to be a business. I don't know about you guys but for me it would be a trip to the Chamber of Commerce and pay €35 a year.
But since I am a contractor I needed to do that anyway some 8 years ago.

The requirements always seem like the problem:

I don't sell Microsoft products.

I believe you do help sell MS solutions.
I mean we're mostly wintel heads with varying octopuses arms into other technologies.

I'd say go for it.
Way cheaper than the option I sent you.

Joseph, THOSE kinda sales don't count.  Anyway, I need to be extremely legal so I can sleep at night so I wrote a guy a check for five Enterprise "upgrades."  (Too big of a check.)  But it'll hold me for the nonce.  And BTW, I assume that if you let your Action Pack lapse, the licenses technically do also.

Action Pack subscriptions are, in my very humble opinion, overpriced.  They used to be around $300, which is just about right.

The article didn't seem to say how one would acquire it.  Some URL straight to Microsoft where you'd buy/manage the licenses a la Office 365, or you've (again) got to find a reseller who doesn't need you to continually re-explain what "no LTSB" means? [smile]

What's wrong with LTSB? :-)

Just started phase 2 of our win10 rollouts... LTSB 2016 dropped just in time!

So do you suffer forced updates on LTSB like on the CB version?

And how does one tell the difference?

No sir, you do not.  One of the BIG reasons we decided to go that route.  Managing a couple thousand laptops that randomly start doing what is essentially a full blown upgrade cycle is a nightmare I don't even want to fathom.  Especially on some of these with 5400rpm drives - it takes forever.  Do you want to tell your executive who's running out the door that he needs to keep his laptop open and running in the car to the airport and onto the plane etc to make sure the upgrade isn't botched and he has a workable machine on the other end - all the while hoping that her battery survives the process?  Blech.

LTSB updates basically the same as 7/8.1 do once you get the settings configured in group policy.

As for the noticeable differences, no Edge/store/modern apps.

We get it from the volume licensing center. I imagine msdn also has it?

What happens to licensing if I want to install one copy of Windows 10 Enterprise with Office 2016 Professional as a virtual machine for one employee to access?
