Raspberry Pi is already compatible with Windows 10, at least unofficially

Windows 10 on Raspberry Pi

Surely that many users who have Raspberry Pi is due to the last news of the official arrival of Windows to Raspberry Pi. But such a thing did not happen, at least it did not happen as many wished.

Windows IoT is the version we receive for Raspberry Pi. A capped version more oriented to the world of Internet of Things than Windows 10 oriented to the world of the desktop. This happened officially, but And unofficially? what we have?

Well, the truth is that thanks to the Dutch developer, Bas Timmer, we have obtained a full version of Windows 10 for Raspberry Pi. The developer has shown some images of such software, images that indicate without a doubt that the version exists, but it still has problems.

Windows 10 is coming to Raspberry Pi despite Microsoft's will

Apparently Timmer got a development version of the next version of Windows 10 that supports ARM. This version, after some modifications, can be installed on Raspberry Pi. Unfortunately, it only uses a single core of the four that the raspberry computer has and with that, the speed is not adequate. But the most annoying thing is that after several minutes of operation, the system emits a processor error and hangs.

Also, the version used it supports x86 emulation, that is, any user will be able to install old applications on this version of Windows 10 ARM, but, of course, it will not have the same speed as the application running under a computer or laptop.

Without a doubt, this development will have many fans and many unconditional users. A development that is not official and that therefore will have its legal problems, so we will not be able to use it on production boards or within companies, but It is still useful if we want to have Windows 10 in our house and to experiment Do not you think?
