Windows 10 preview for Raspberry Pi arrives

By

Windows 10 IoT Core Insider Preview is now available for download.

As part of Microsoft's strategy for keeping its developer community within the fold, Windows 10 is going to run on a broad range of hardware from conventional PCs to the types of system that power devices which will make up the Internet of Things.

Windows 10 IoT Core Insider Preview, which supports the Raspberry Pi 2 and Intel's Minnowboard Max, is now available for download along with sample projects to help developers become accustomed to the environment.

According to Microsoft's director of IoT program management Steve Teixeira, "Our goal is to give Makers the opportunity to play with the software bits early and to listen to the feedback on what’s working well and what we can do better."

He added Those looking for a commercial-quality release should wait for general availability this [northern] summer."

Note, this is not a full version of Windows as you'd expect on a PC, tablet or phone, but rather a way that developers can use familiar Microsoft tools and APIs to produce code for a new generation of devices.

Teixeira also pointed out that Arduino is getting attention from Microsoft.

Windows Remote Arduino provides a mechanism for Windows 10 software to send commands to Arduino devices, and for allowing Arduino hardware to access a Lumia phone's sensors.
