    Will windows 10 IoT be free after launch?

    Windows 10 IoT will launch for computer like the Raspberry Pi 2. Will it cost anything to download after the official launch?

    *Dinesh*Thumbs I have a B+ and will be buying one of these as well. I was reading an article on it on the Hackaday site. I was happy to see that this new version should be able to run Android, the B+ I have won't. This is even better news though. I'm guessing this is a port of Windows RT?

    I got one (Model B) hooked up as a headless internet radio and network music player with wireless headphone. I control it via app on android phone.



    Other times I use it as a surveillance cam.

    For a lot of things if you are a coding enthusiast. Look it up on google.

    It can be a stand alone PC by itself ( but you need a monitor with HDMI). It can run linux, android and they are working on free Windows 10 version for RPi.

    It's a mini single board computer. Based on a SOC, System On a Chip, I believe. I have a GPS breakout module and a pressure temp sensor breakout module to play with. They plug into a bread board that connects to the GPIO pins on the Pi. I haven't done a whole lot much with mine yet. I just ordered a 5 inch LCD touch display for mine. It's just the bare touch screen with backpack. No case. HDMI input. It should arrive any day now. We've been doing a bunch of home renovations so I packed it all away for now. I have to find some space to set it all up again to play with.

You will be blown away when you find out. But to give you an idea, you can use an RPi board to make...

    - A game console/Arcade machine
    -A netbook
    -Time lapse camera dolly
    -airplay speakers
    -internet radio
    -web server
    -wearable computer
    -a control unit for quad-copter
    -HD surveillance camera
    -3D scanner
    -web controlled power strip
    -photo booth...

    I can go on forever... *Biggrin

    And the latest quad-core board with 1GB RAM is only $35.

    Internet of Things devices are basically whatever niche purpose you have. In my case for example, I was thinking of doing a Pi to power an notification screen on my compulator tower but since it can't run Windows and RT at the time wasn't a usable SKU, that didn't happen. But with the new Pi and Windows 10, I can add in a notification screen onto the front of my future tower that shows the time, possibly control an audio amp's power supply, showing my notifications of course and maybe a picture slide show. It'll be used as a fancy display piece for pretty freaking cheap too.

    The other possibility I might look into to see if it'll be feasible with Windows 10 RT and the Pi 2 is using it to power my baby PC I'll be making for my car soon to be a media center/infotainment system. $35 is cheaper than almost $100 for the mini-ITX board and AMD APU and uses little power. I don't know about that though, because I do need it x86 based for desktop programs like itunes so if someone wants to stream music from their iphone in my car, they can use itunes to do that.

    The fun thing with the Raspberry Pi is and kind frustrating as well is finding a purpose for it. It's such a niche device that can power complex simple things like smart vending machines or fancy display systems or even a cheap HTPC.

    With it's HDMI (1080p) video port, HTPC is indeed the most practical use. And if it's running Windows, it will be no sweat to connect it to a central NAS.

    @ Coke Robot, I don't see this being able to run x86 desktop programs. The port is likely RT or Windows phone 10? It's an ARM processor. From what I've read the supplied Windows OS is going to have some dev tools in it and be a bit different from the consumer version of 10. That could be good or bad depending on what you plan on doing with your Pi. One thing I do want to do is set one up as a media PC. Being able to run Netflix will be a bonus.
