New Raspberry Pi 2 will run Windows 10

#1 Post by Automate » Mon Feb 02, 2015 7:49 am

New Raspberry Pi 2 will run free version of Windows 10 http://www.raspberrypi.org/raspberry-pi-2-on-sale/

We'll need to come out with a Windows 10 (on Arm) compatible version of OSA

I am just getting ready to start my first project using the Raspberry PI 2... Still waiting on the part to get here, but would be happy to be a test dummy. Even if we could create a OSA client of some sort that would be very useful for controlling An A/V rack or other such systems that are not in the same place as the OSA Server.

Well, I will probably never find time to play with it, but I get jealous, so I ordered a Pi 2 B starter kit. I don't wanna miss the IoT train.

As to IoT I picked this up about a week ago for a weather station I am building pretty cool little kit.

This inspired me to play with my Galileo. I bricked it. The blink example would not run, guess it was broke or locked up or something. But I tried to upgrade the firmware, and it failed and the com port disappeared.

The links about a Windows 10 load for the Galileo were all 404, which made me not happy.

I have no interest in Linux and Eclipse.

Galileo is no more.

Excited to try again with the Pi, and glad to have cleared a pending project off of my plate.

I got my new Pi 2b, but my dev machine has not gotten its Windows 10 upgrade yet, then I need Visual Studio 2015... So now I guess I get to wait, or load VS on my test box which is just a sad i5...

Argh, I wish I saw this earlier!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BTW my Pi work has been going well, all except the WiFi. I just compiled and ran the blinky app on it, so I know I can run C# code I write on it! This has went sooo much better than any other microboards I have worked with.

PWM and servo control and voice are the things I am after and I am a long way from there though. And then tying it to an Netdrunio maybe to handle the servos and motors, at least that seems to be common.

I really think this is going to open the door to having mini controllers around the house if we can build a OSA client for the Raspberry PI. While I won't be much help with the actual client software I will be able to help with interface and control options we may want incorporate from a hardware standpoint.

Plug for Microcenter:

They have the Pi 2 Model B cheaper than any source on Amazon ($29). I may pick up an extra when I go to KC tomorrow.

They have a Uno R3 for $5.99 too
