Microsoft windows 10 on pi2

Thu Feb 12, 2015 5:01 pm

What do you think about the idea of windows on pi2? I'm not a big fan of it and I'm affraid that it might cause more bad than good.

Edit. The original question was not precise enough. I'm asking about microsoft windows 10

windows 10 is not what you think [probably]
windows is not for the RPI
x windows is better but even x windows is not windows 10

Given how the question is worded the only answer is "yes".

Darn it, I said "I don't care"! I gave an impossible answer :lol:

(I know you were kidding.)

If I want microsoft 10, I'll just buy another computer for it. No problem.

As mentioned already, the version of Win 10 won't let you use Office or the Internet, which is probably what most people thought they wanted to be able to do. And according to MS's website it will be mainly for developing apps (mobile apps) and general programming from what they say. So, you probably won't be able to run it as a normal computer, unless you manage to find a way to maybe get OpenOffice on it.

Maybe Microsoft will surprise us (doubt it) and make it kinda like Rasbian is to Debian as Windows 10 is to Windows 10 for pi. :lol:
