Windows 10 on Raspberry Pi 2
« on: February 03, 2015, 03:44:02 PM »
Over the years, the Raspberry Pi has helped children learn to code and has powered many homebrew projects around the world, but some users have often lamented at the lack Windows support. Luckily, now that the Raspberry Pi 2 is here, that's all about to change. Microsoft has announced that it will support the Raspberry Pi Foundation's latest board, making a specialized version of its Windows 10 operating system available to the wider Pi community for free via its Windows Developer Program for IoT (Internet of Things).

Microsoft says that Windows 10 will be made available "later this year," offering it to "Makers" in the same way it delivered Windows builds for developers utilising Intel's Galileo board. The key thing here is price: tinkerers can grab the new ARMv7 board, which is said to deliver at least six times the performance of the old Model B+, for just $35 and begin building their own home automation tools. Microsoft says it will share more details on what its new version of Windows 10 can do in "the coming months", but it shouldn't mean that you wait until then before buying one.

Furthermore, this model has better power regulator which makes it capable to have more USB ports

Windows 10 for Raspberry Pi 2 Model B doesnt recognize USB Wireless mini adapter, though its getting finely detected by Raspbian on the same device.

So what is the deal with Win10 in this case.
Is it the WinRT sort of thing where it cannot run standard windows apps or what?

Ive been looking for a small lightweight mini computer to run The Dude on, the new Raspberry Pi 2  Windows 10 looks perfect.
Will The Dude run on that Windows 10 ARM platform though?
