Download Windows 10 IoT Core for Raspberry Pi 2 and more!

Posted August 2015 by Steve Sinchak

Windows 10 IoT Core is a new edition of Windows that is designed specifically for small embedded devices such as the Rasberry Pi 2 and Intel MinnowBoard Max. Based on Windows 10, IoT core can run Universal Windows apps written in Vistual Studio 2015 with languages like C++, C#, JS, VB, Node.js and Python.  If your embedded device has the ability to connect to a display, you can create rich experiences similar to full screen apps on a Windows 10 PC.  Best of all, Windows 10 IoT Core is free!

In the final release, Microsoft has included support for Bluetooth and WiFi radios which is a very welcome addition so makers can finally untether their devices that were previously required to leverage Ethernet for network connectivity. Take a look at the release notes for a full list of changes and known issues.
