Given that this supports several different platforms, we still have work to do on some. For example, the dragonboard is not yet supported, and we have some current limitations on the Pi 2 build.
We plan to have additional releases in the future. Some important notes on the PI:
Windows 10 IoT Core is still being ported to the Raspberry PI. The video driver for the Raspberry PI is still under development, and its performance has not yet been optimized. Animated user elements, such as XAML based drop down menus in particular, may display poorly. [Edit from Pete: In addition, the onboard UART is not currently functional for serial, and anything which requires a Popup element (example: WebAuth Broker) will fail. WiFi requires the use of a specific Raspberry Pi WiFi adapter.]
I have a second one in testing myself (actually sitting here next to me, not tested yet), but don’t have anything to report just yet. It’s almost as hard to get, and is available only from the UK. The team hasn’t tested this one, but it is same chipset as above.
That’s my one gripe with Adafruit - they are ALWAYS out of stock on the items you really want. I used to be a distributor for them in Spain through my online store, and it was a source of constant frustration and led me to holding larger inventories, which of course everybody did and that just made the problem worse.
Anyway, piswag still has them and they will ship pretty much anywhere, and they will express ship : http://swag.raspberrypi.org/ Being in the EU, they worked particularly well for me because it meant no customs fees.

@ Mr. John Smith - Got my wifi adapters yesterday and they work great, and yes you can establish client and server sockets and serve up web pages. Some folks claim to have gotten asp.net working, though I haven’t tried that. There are some web server samples here : GitHub - ms-iot/samples: Windows 10 IoT Core Samples
Ok question, I am looking to really get started on my master project, and IoT core is appealing, and I have both a Fez Hat and Fez Cream, so prototyping on the RPI2 should be fun, but is there something I should look at for the long term as a board for production?
Ooh, is there any sample on that? I just need to talk to an XBee controller so I can make the RP2 into a gateway. And while you pass along the flack, please toss some praise in with it. This really has me excited!
