Raspberry Pi was originally aimed at students and hobbyists, and it can now function as a Linux computer.
And if support for Microsoft’s Windows 10 desktop OS is added to the latest Raspberry Pi 3, it could become a viable computer for millions of PC users who are not technically savvy.
Support for Windows 10 desktop is on founder Eben Upton’s wishlist for Raspberry Pi 3, which shipped in February. The mini computer already supports Windows 10 IoT Core, a stripped-down version of the OS for Internet of Things devices.
But that decision is not in Upton’s hands. It’s feasible, but not now contemplated as part of Raspberry Pi’s relationship with Microsoft, Upton said.
