If I were to find a Raspberry Pi clone that has a Qualcomm chip, would it work???
1. There has only ever been one Pi clone...and it didn't last long.
2. Even if you found another board using a Snapdragon SoC and was otherwise similar to a Pi, it wouldn't be a "Pi clone".
It's not that it is (intrinsically) that difficult to duplicate the Pi. It's just that you need to order enough SoCs from Broadcom for them to be willing to sell them to you. Back in the day, that was expressed as "How many hundreds of thousands do you want per quarter?" So if you have several million dollars burning a hole in your pocket, you can spend it developing a Pi clone if you're mind to. For considerably less, you could investigate the Element 14 Custom Pi program. You could get into that for more like $100K or so. In any case, you still won't be using a Snapdragon SoC and the ARM64 Win 10 still won't be likely to run on your "Pi clone".
