The idea of running the world’s most popular desktop OS on a Raspberry Pi is intriguing, particularly because Microsoft doesn’t support running full Windows on this $35 single-board computer. Yes, you can get an official build of Windows 10 IoT for Pi, but that OS is “Windows” in name only; it’s only meant for prototyping, not running real desktop apps. With Windows 10 coming to Arm devices, such as Qualcomm’s Always-Connected PCs (ACPCs), we know that it’s possible to run full Windows, even win32 apps, on Arm-powered computers. And, with a lot of patience and elbow grease, you can run full Windows 10 on your Raspberry Pi, but unless you’re just curious, the painful setup is not worth your time, because the payoff is an OS you can’t really use. Installation It took me the better part of two business days to end up with a Windows 10-powered Raspberry Pi 3B. To be fair, after the first 3 or 4 hours, during which I experienced a slew … [Read more...] about I Ran Windows 10 on Raspberry Pi So You Don’t Have To

Along with Tuesday's monthly security patches, Microsoft has released new builds of Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10 for users on the April 2018 Update and the October 2018 Update releases. The Windows 10 October 2018 Update, or version 1809, has now been bumped up to build number 17763.316. It fixes several bugs but contains no new features. The update fixes a bug in Microsoft Edge that prevents the browser from connecting to a site using an IP address. It also fixes a bug that causes the Windows Hello for Business Hybrid Key Trust deployment sign-in to fail if Windows 2019 Server domain controllers (DC) are used for authentication. In addition, it fixed a security bug in Microsoft's HoloLens that allows users to bypass the lock screen in some circumstances. The build contains Microsoft's Patch Tuesday fixes that addressed 77 security flaws for all supported versions of Windows, including a handful affecting Windows 10. The security patches … [Read more...] about New Windows 10 updates: These are the bugs Microsoft just fixed
If you want to run Windows 10 on your Raspberry Pi, then previously, you’ve needed to stick with the IoT Core spin of Microsoft’s OS – designed for low-powered devices like Internet of Things (IoT) gadgets – but now it’s apparently possible to stuff Windows 10 on ARM onto the Pi.This is achieved via an installer tool which has been made available by the same folks who put Windows 10 ARM on old Lumia 950 XL smartphones.José Manuel Nieto, the developer behind the WoA Installer for Raspberry Pi 3, notes that it’s “super easy to use”, although it needs a set of Core Package binaries to function. Nieto observes: “These binaries are not mine and are bundled and offered just for convenience to make your life easier, since this tool is focused on simplicity.”An in-depth look at Windows 10 on ARM and Windows 10 IoTA few Windows 10 on ARM laptops can run LinuxHere’s how to turn a Raspberry Pi into a Steam LinkAt any rate, the … [Read more...] about Windows 10 on ARM will run on your Raspberry Pi 3
I'm still getting used to living in a small town. This time, it's the neighbors. I've lived in much bigger cities where I never even met my neighbors during my entire residence there. Here, the neighbors are more sociable, sometimes bringing cookies or fudge, sometimes complaining about Windows, and sometimes offering tips on my power tool posture when fixing my porch.Also: Microsoft's Windows 7 has one year of free support leftIt's kind of delightful, in a "How did this happen to me?" kind of way. In any case, one neighbor came over to say "Hi" when I took Pixel pup outside, and then a guy from down the street who was walking by also decided to meander over for a visit. Neighbor One had asked my plans for the day, and I explained I was about to go in and start testing a review product using a Windows 10 VPN. That got him started on a rant about Microsoft, Windows, Amazon, Jeff Bezos' peccadillos, the President, whether Tilly is getting too much screen time on Star Trek, and then … [Read more...] about I like Windows 7: Why should I pay to move to Windows 10?
The best flavor of HDR on Windows 10 is 4K (3,840 x 2,160), 60 fps RGB (4:4:4) video with 10 bits (1 billion) colors. To get that to work requires a more expensive PC and definitely a more expensive 10-bit monitor. For the latter, you can cheat a bit by using an 8-bit monitor that dithers colors to 10-bit, also known as frame-rate conversion. For my testing, I had both a true 10-bit and 8-bit + FRC display.Intel notes that 7th-generation Kaby Lake CPUs with integrated HD graphics are its first to support HDR. Any CPUs from that generation or later should allow for playback of HDR content, including YouTube videos, Netflix and Blu-Ray movies. However, your laptop or desktop PC also needs the appropriate BIOS and other hardware.To do any kind of gaming in HDR, you'll need discrete graphics. NVIDIA started supporting HDR with its 900-series Maxwell GPUs, with the least costly option being the GeForce GTX 960. Considering how HDR can tax your system, however, you'd be best off with a more … [Read more...] about I tried, failed and finally managed to set up HDR on Windows 10
