Microsoft and Raspberry Pi

Microsoft Makes Raspberry Pi Its Preferred IoT Dev Board

Intel's Galileo scratched off Windows 10 'thing' list

A little over a year after Intel's Galileo development board got its first taste of Microsoft Windows, Redmond has decided to pull the project.
Chipzilla's Raspberry Pi-like Galileo was anointed as able-to-run-Windows in August 2014, courtesy of the 1.0.2 firmware update for the Gen1 device. In the same month Intel launched the Gen2 board (which got its stripped-down Windows 8 version in October 2014).
Microsoft was also handing out Galileo devices free to developers joining its Internet of Things program.
