Re: Win10 iot or not?

You cannot run an UWP app with admin privileges except under debug if your VS is also running at Admin...

Re: Win10 iot or not?

Which one is better for you? It depends on your application. If you have a large amount of .NET expertise, and are more comfortable with .NET than Linux, and you wish to write IoT apps, then Win10Iot is a great choice for you. If you wish to write non-IoT apps for Pi's (ie desktop apps) Win10IoT ma...

Re: Raspberry Pi Tablet: usability and use case(s)?

I'm intrigued by the prospect of a DIY tablet making use of a Raspberry Pi. Make made an article on the front page of a magazine or two, Adafruit made a tutorial, and there are a couple others floating around too. However, the Raspberry Pi can't run Android due to lack of Android SoC drivers, nor c...

Re: Less powerful alternatives for raspberry pi

The Java should be discarded anyway. The JVM itself is very important and includes much that is useful, but it has a lot of overhead. It obviously isn't the right choice for running on a tiny microcontroller. But if the person was retaining the Pi2, say, and power use wasn't such a big deal, he may...

You're very likely to be violating the Microsoft EULA by attempting to do this.
There is https://github.com/0xabu/qemu/tree/raspi which works on IoT(mentionned on this thread)
You can also emulate the Tegra 3 and run it

Frankly I'm not sure what you are asking for here. Can you elucidate please? The ARM core has two modes of operation, ARM and Thumb2. Windows NT switches the core to Thumb2 in each context switch so ARM code is unreliable[the context switch can happen at any time]. I wonder why Windows NT* doesn't ...

Re: Which is the fastest Raspberry Pi?

That depends on your definition of "faster". Certainly 1000mhz is faster than 900mhz. As I mentioned the 2B does have a performance advantage over previous models which is quite noticeable even during casual browsing. I would be curious to know which board can wiggle an I/O bit faster. The IPC of t...
