The slimmed down version of Windows 10 for devices such as the Raspberry Pi 2 has arrived and it is royalty free for makers, available right here. The Register describes some problems with the current version, mostly incompatibility with certain peripherals but also include occasional video crashes or networking issues. Seeing as how this particular incarnation of the OS is designed for creative minds tinkering on custom hardware the issues are not unexpected nor should you consider it proof the OS is not usable if you plan on tinkering with it. You will need a full PC for development with Windows 10 and Visual Studio 2015 to start using the slimmed down Windows 10, nothing new but certainly worth noting. Check out more on the Universal Windows Platform and Windows 10 for the IoT at The Register.
"Microsoft has shipped the public release of Windows 10 IoT Core, the pared-down version of Windows 10 for embedded devices, including the Intel MinnowBoard Max and the Raspberry Pi 2."
