Windows 10 on a Raspberry Pi

In February, I blogged about Microsoft’s intent to release a version of Windows 10 for the new version of the Raspberry Pi.

Just yesterday, Microsoft made good on that promise and made a developer preview available for download.

The Raspberry Pi is a small, cheap computer that typically runs Linux. Lots of experimenters and hobbyists are using it for all kinds of home automation tasks. It’s also great for prototyping manufacturing systems and Internet of Things apps.

Because of this expanding market, Microsoft saw the opportunity and jumped! They’ve also announced an Arduino port. Arduino is another IoT developer platform – highly customizable, small and cheap enough to embed in just about anything.

What will you do with a cheap computer that can run Windows 10?

I've downloaded it and I'll be installing it on a RPi in the next couple of days. (I'll blog about the experience sometime next week.)
