Raspberry Pi 2 ordered
I was excited to see the Raspberry Pi 2 announced today
One is on the way. It will be interesting to see how it works out – particularly for some of the more heavy duty apps I have tried in the past such as FLDigi.
A new version of the OS compiled for the new processor is required and can be downloaded here
More news when it arrives!
Was excited when I read the press releases at work about this. In terms of new versions of the Linux OS’s, Microsoft just announced that Windows 10 will run on this as well. If that wasn’t enough, Windows 10 (at least for the immediate future) will be free for this board. All you have to do is sign up on the Windows 10 Pi development page for free.
It appears that Windows 10 will be free for everyone; the days of paying for an OS are past us.
I’m sorry, but I don’t think we should be happy with Windows 10 on the RPi. If you want to tinker and not be limited by your OS then what gain do you have with Windows? It will probably not run smooth and make the RPi look bad. Luckily the RPi community is already quite large and hopefully can absorb some negativity.
As for myself: I won’t be buying one. Still not recovered from the USB/power/network design flaws in version 1 and for a little more money you can buy a lot more hardware, e.g. the Cubieboard.
Got mine today! I’ll be configuring it tomorrow. Fldigi and WSJT-x soon thereafter.
