Window 10 on Raspberry Pi

The weekly news cycle kicked off with a bang with the huge announcement that the newest incarnation of the Raspberry Pi will be capable of running Windows 10. The Raspberry Pi 2 ups the ante on the hardware front from its predecessor with a quad-core CPU, 1GB of RAM and an upgrade to ARM v7 which allows it to run an OS such as Windows.

It's not going to be the full fat Windows 10 we'll be running on an Ultrabook or something like the Surface Pro 3, instead a customized version delivered as part of Microsoft's IoT developer program. But at just $35 for the basic hardware and a free copy of Windows 10 there's bound to be a lot of interest. So, are you planning to get one?

The original Raspberry Pi developed an incredible following among nerds alongside its target audience of kids learning to code. Ordinarily it runs on Linux, but with a version of Windows 10 on hand we'd be lying if we weren't suddenly very excited by this low cost computer.

We'll be taking a closer look as and when things develop further. For while the hardware is available to purchase today, we're going to be waiting a little while to be using it with Windows 10. Nevertheless, drop a vote in the poll and give us your thoughts on the Raspberry Pi 2 in the comments below.
