    OK, but why?
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    Cheaper way to get a Win 10 dev platform if you're specifically targeting UWP or Windows on Arm? Because you just want to play with Win 10 on ARM?

    Or, perhaps, the evergreen ... "why not?"

    To me that sounds like:

    I want to nail my hand to a mouldy tree with a rusty spike; why not?

    I don't care how easy it is, not interested

    I thought Win10 was a raspberry already.

    Not quite the analogy I've have used for W10, but I like it. Very good play on words.

    Re: Getting Windows 10 on your RasPi is easier than ever

    Might give it a poke but not holding out much hope after iot a couple of years back. invested both time and money into it to try and get something marketable up and running but Microsoft just weren't interested in sorting out a graphics driver that could push even the slightest of visuals around a screen that didn't behave like something from the 70's. it was an embarrassment and after a year or waiting it was clear their plans were elsewhere

    Yup, all that time and money would have been much better spent learning and developing with one of the Linux graphical APIs. Plus Windows 10 on Pi is going to be glacially slow.

    Visual Studio 2019 (.net core 3) now has built-in support for raspberry pi gpio pins... But of course you don't need windows on ARM to run .net core!

    Someone in this world might find this useful, and the author probably had some time to kill and challenged himself.
