Raspberry Pi gained quick popularity and has been one of the most admired platforms ever since its inception in 2012 because of its low-cost yet highly capable boards and compute modules.

Talking about their collaboration with Raspberry Pi Foundation Dallas posted in his official blog post, “Raspberry Pi 2 is a surprisingly powerful device that opens up the world of computing and programming to a huge range of people and skill levels. We are excited about our work with the Raspberry Pi Foundation and to share that Windows 10 will support Raspberry Pi 2.”
