  • Raspberry Pi and Windows 10 hands on

    i think the problems is that I am trying to make the point that this new device using this board is not intended as a desktop pc replacement by Microsoft.

    CAN it be used for one ? Yes it can if you want to do that, but that is not the idea for it.

    yes for just a doorbell that's a waste of a lot of the hardware etc....

    but perhaps I want a doorbell with a video camera facial recognition and the interfacing to un lock the door and turn off my alarm and turn on the ac and make pop corn and play a movie!

    Hello Jarvis....

    I do not think it is a "uneducated" to believe that when Microsoft announced the release of Windows 10 for Raspberry Pi, that I would have access to a complete desktop operating system, including the standard desktop included with Windows 10 and support for desktop applications. To me, the unusual aspect is that it does not include such things.

    You bring up Linux, it is not unusual to run equivalent operating system on different architectures. For instance, there is no major user facing differences between Debian on x86 or Debian on Raspberry Pi.  The same desktop, software, and other systems are available. Most computer languages are portable across architectures, and the Linux kernel itself is no exception.

    As I said, I suspect this is a simple omission due to the fact that the software is prerelease, and a proper release of Windows 10 will include such features as the ability to run desktop applications.

    The full name is not windows 10, possibly as you have not bothered to check the build info you are missing a few details...

    Windows 10 core IoT  like windows embedded of old days, there are other builds coming that will be closer to a retail/ desktop but I do not know if they will run on a pi board or something else. This info is in the build videos that explain what Microsoft is doing. Again, if you want to know then check the videos out.

    No need to get all combative man. I was just curious what value, if any, this new Windows distro has for me.

    Unfortunately if it can not run Windows applications, it's of no value to me. What I mean by that is it ought to be able to run same software I can run on my Windows 7 machine, although perhaps due to the different architecture, via a recompilation. That's what I thought it could do. I understand that it's an early version and future versions may add more complete Windows support, but right now this is not good for my use case.

    This not for the desktop.

    This is for making a device, think mini Linux like for a firewall or to make a doorbell or a weather station that sends data to your web server. Not for running an editor .,. while we might be able to that is not the intended use.

    It seems like this version of Windows may not actually support execution of software written for Windows, even when compiled from source code. Personally, I think that's a pretty severe feature omission. I hope that's only a temporary thing and Microsoft adds support for running Windows applications in a future update.

    I know you are not really that uneducated so why act that way?  this is not a desktop with an x86 type CPU.

    I am not an expert on the tools you asked about.  over the life of Linux there have been changes that needed to have software updated to run with the new versions. Same thing here.

    I don't understand what you mean by universal app format. Is that what Windows programs are called now? I mainly want to know if I can run a program written in Python on this Windows. I need support for NumPy too.

    We are all learning about this, check out the build videos, they now have a single format to install on each device that runs windows 10, I am not sure of the internal details yet.

    Pi is arm, they have a c++ for windows 10 on arm and a a.net for the pi on windows 10 arm.

    Right now I think if you want it you will need to port it to run on windows ten. This is early days for some new stuff.

    Nope. it runs services etc. but AFAIK you basically run one app at a time. It runs universal apps though, so what you write for the desktop will run on the Pi as well.

    I think we can run more than one at a time, just that this is kind of day one right now. No reason it can't multitask.

    "universal app"? Can I run arbitrary Windows programs on it? CPython?

    Got an arm version for the universal app format ?

  • How old net

    well first this is a test of some code and may have bugs.

    second who says the images really came from the site and are not photoshop jokes?

    the site looks for faces.... I do not see any faces in the strange pictures other than the one person in the one picture.

    it's an old usb mouse from an asus system, it is working with the rasbian / Linux boot just fine.

    I rebooted and now the mouse is doing like it did before where it's jumping all over along one axis like it can't figure out the right x,y coord, the keyboard sleep key works.

    some kind od bug in the mouse driver I guess.

  • Raspberry Pi and Windows 10 hands on

    Hmm... I have the screen with the name and ip address but no mouse pointer at all this time.

    I wonder what is wrong, hard to tell so far.
