Windows 10 IOT

Wed Aug 12, 2015 2:38 pm

Hi, I was hoping to get opinions of the new Windows 10 iot for raspberry pi 2 from people with some more experience and knowledge than I have. Is it just a worthless thing windows is pushing or does it actually have some real potential to be heavily used? Or any other thoughts about it?

As it is a MS Product why not ask MSDN users as they will likely have expeience of W10 IoT Core for ARM & x86

To add something positive, yes it is a useful device/OS combination. My personal main goal is using the AllJoyn package that is preinstalled along with my own Xbee gateway that I am (very slowly) creating.
The main detractors for me at present are:
1- no drivers from FTDI for the VCP functionality of their FT232 series USB-Serial adapters.
2- Having to rely on SD card as a drive.This is IMO the biggest detractor to commercial scale use.

Further info on AllJoyn: https://ms-iot.github.io/content/en-US/ ... llJoyn.htm

There are also pre-installed some POS drivers etc, which I have not bothered to find out more about.

I expect that WinIoT development will progress more rapidly now that Windows 10 is released. A published road map would help a lot. MSFT have a long history of supplying embedded products, this is the next version.
