Microsoft woos makers: Windows 10 for RPi 2, Arduino

Microsoft woos makers: Windows 10 for RPi 2, Arduino

Following up on what it started last February, Microsoft is pushing through with the thrust to bring Windows 10 to even smaller and less powerful but more general purpose hardware. In short, it is targeting the development and hobby boards that hackers and makers have grown to love. As part of its attempt to remain relevant in the Internet of Things (IoT), it is starting an Insider Preview of what it calls Windows 10 IoT Core. Plus, it has just made sure that at least one edition of the OS is now labeled as "Arduino-certified".

Kano OS made free for Raspberry Pi 2

Kano OS made free for Raspberry Pi 2

To quicken the development of Kano OS and its innards, the team behind the creation of the "fast, fun, friendly OS" have made it free to Raspberry Pi 2. This software works with games, web browsing, a video app, and lots of tools for software development. This system comes with a toolset of utilities for Raspberry Pi and the OS itself and is aimed at developers - though you could very well make your own tiny console with it if you do so wish.

Raspberry Pi 2 hands-on: first boot on 2nd-gen

Raspberry Pi 2 hands-on: first boot on 2nd-gen

Today we took the Raspberry Pi 2 out of the box and the static shielding bag to give it a first start-up and go. As you'd expect, loading software to an SD card is much the same as it was in the past - except here you're using a much smaller microSD card instead. After that, you've got a more powerful processor and 1GB of RAM to work, so it's time to get quick. Today we're checking in on the basics - getting an operating system running and heading to boot.

Raspberry Pi 2: the $35 PC gets a big boost

Raspberry Pi 2: the $35 PC gets a big boost

This week we're seeing the next generation in Raspberry Pi technology. For those of you that've never heard of the Raspberry Pi, it's a barebones computer that's made to be exceedingly cheap whilst retaining functionality for do-it-yourself electronics makers. In other words - it's the brain for your next robot. This second major wave release is being put out for the same price as the most recent Raspberry Pi unit, but here you're getting a 900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU with 6x the performance of the previous best board.

Windows 10 to support Raspberry Pi 2

Windows 10 to support Raspberry Pi 2

The new Raspberry Pi 2 was announced earlier today with significantly more power than the original Raspberry Pi. The coolest part about the Raspberry Pi 2 having six times the power and 1GB of RAM is that it will sell for the same price as the old Pi. Microsoft has made an announcement that will make the new Raspberry Pi even more interesting; Windows 10 will run on the cheap developer's board.

Raspberry Pi 2 promises 6x the power, 1 GB RAM, same price

The Raspberry Pi has been quite popular at democratizing the DIY board and reinvigorating the maker culture. Since its launch, however, there have been many rivals that have tried to take a bite out of it, some perhaps more successful than others. RPi, as it is lovingly called, is out for revenge and it will be delivering it through the new Raspberry Pi 2 model B, the successor to the most recent B+ model that kicks things up a notch thanks to a new BCM2836 chip.

Odroid-C1 gives DIYers a Raspberry Pi-compatible board

Odroid-C1 gives DIYers a Raspberry Pi-compatible board

Although single board computers or SBCs have been existence for a long time, the Raspberry Pi really ushered in a new era by democratizing such boards, making them available at extremely affordable prices. Since then, many have tried to emulate that success and offer hackers, modders, tinkers and all sorts of DIY fans boards of varying power and prices. Hardkernel's new Odroid-C1 is one of those, though it has one clear, but not clearly advertised, advantage: it's input/output pins are compatible with Raspberry Pi's.
