Raspberry Pi 2 will run Windows 10

Quad-core microcomputer costs $35

A new Raspberry Pi 2 is coming that is based on a 900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex A7 processor with 1GB of RAM and it will run Windows 10, all for $35.

That's right, now you still need a keyboard, mouse, monitor, etc, but the price is unbelievable. As far as a comparison goes, the new Raspberry Pi 2 is six times more powerful than the original.

The new Raspberry Pi 2 goes on sale right away and the foundation has been working with Microsoft on a version of Windows 10 that will run on the Pi 2. While we don't know everything yet about the version of Windows 10 that it will run, from what we understand the Pi 2 compatible edition of Windows 10 will be part of Microsoft's Windows Developer Programs for IoT (Internet of Things) which is focused on bringing Windows development tools to smaller devices.

The new Pi 2 with Windows 10 will not appeal to those looking for their first computer, but those wanting to use the Pi 2 with the Windows Developer Tools to build and create. While both sides say there is more to talk about in the weeks ahead, it is for sure that this could end up being a very special creative offering.
