@ godefroi - Agreed, though I wouldn’t go so far as to say “silly.”
But there’s no reason whatsoever to try to shoehorn Windows into an mCu board.
I’m definitely happy that there seems to be more movement on the NETMF front, without worrying about whether or not it fits in the Windows shoebox.
While I haven’t jumped in yet, I am intrigued by the Galileo and Edison projects, and will be interested to see where they go. I’m also extending my knowledge beyond NETMF with mBuino and some Arduino-type stuff (in my copious free time ).
I think that having one Windows that runs on everything from servers to XBOX One to laptops to tablets to phablets to phones is quite ambitious enough, thank you very much. If Microsoft is able to pull that off, it will be quite the feather in Nadella’s cap, even if some of the work undoubtedly started under the much-maligned Steve Ballmer.
