Windows Ten Build

Mon Apr 27, 2015 11:13 pm

Microsoft has released a do it yourself software complier for the platform "Internet of Things" I'm not a total expert but I'm neither a noob, within the next could of hours I will be compiling windows ten for the raspberry pi 2, I guess what I would like to know from you guys if I can successfully make a working windows ten build for the raspberry pi 2, should I release it for you guys to test or should I keep it for myself, silly question I know because I believe all software should be free for everyone, but I'm not an expert and I don't want my build to mess up anything, the good news is that if you have the raspberry pi 2, the build will be universal and most likely will work flawlessly, I guess it depends on how good of a compiling job I do lol, would love your guys feedback

Probably best would be instructions for the rest us to make our own build, in the interests of believing that all software should be free for everyone. Should take less than a couple of hours, no?

Check any agreements you've made with MS before releasing anything. You may "believe" that all software should be free, but there are people who hold rights to software that disagree rather strenuously, and some of them have very deep pockets to use to effectively ask courts to agree with them.

Well to download all the tools needed it took me about 2 hours, the compiling isn't taking that long though

Has nobody explained to you that Windows 10 on the Raspberry Pi is still completely vapourware?

It was announced with a massive fanfare on 2nd Feb and nearly three months later there's nothing, nada, diddly squat, sweetFA, the square root of b**ger all that has emerged from Redmond, WA for the Raspberry Pi.

Were these BSPs something you downloaded in your IOT package from Windows? Can you give a link?

Whatever registration system Microsoft have used for their Raspberry Pi stuff it appears they're holding the SQL server database for it on /dev/null.

The silence is deafening.

Does SQL Server have a /dev/null?

DOS does have a NULL: device (cf COM1:, COM3:, etc.)

I don't know the specifics of the law, but the clause that says: "you may not make more copies of the software than specified in this agreement."

When we run a program on a computer, don't we instruct the OS to make a copy of the program in the local memory, and then copies of individual parts of the program (instructions) onto the CPU. Isn't that technically going against the licence :)

Tell that to the judge, and see how good an argument he thinks it is for ignoring "you may not make more copies of the software than specified in this agreement.".... :roll:
