The Raspberry Pi Foundation just pulled the covers off the Raspberry Pi 2 this morning and it’s already revealed some more interesting news – the new model will run Windows 10.

In its blog post announcing the Raspberry Pi 2, the organization says it’s been working with Microsoft for the last six months to bring Windows 10 to the new Pi.

The Raspberry Pi 2-compatible version of Windows 10 will be available free. We’re promised updates over the next few months and if you’re keen to hear more, you can sign up for the Windows Developer Program for IoT at WindowsOnDevices.
