@fsc:That's good info regarding the LEDs. I just implemented the circuit as designed in the project kit I bought. I hope I said something in the video about not being an electrical engineer, because it's really true! 😆
Regarding Windows 10 IoT Core - True story, I debated that. I actually asked the team here in MSFT that's working on System.Devices.Gpio and they strongly preferred the Raspian demo. I think I might do a follow-up at some point covering Win 10 IoT.
