No I didn't know that.   I have seen windows on a pi but just thought it was a hack. I don't use Windows much.   I use Linux at work and at home.    Win 7 and win 10 are only used when I just can't seem to figure out a realistic workaround with Ubuntu and even then it's only on a dual booting machine not a dedicated desktop

You know you can get Win10 IOT for the Pi right? (it's free)

I know that there are a lot more distributions I could try but I would still be handcuffed with having to run vcc with WINE unless I use a remote desktop but that defeats the purpose of running a pi in the first placeSent from my BlackBerry Passport Red Edition.
