ORBITER-FORUM will be temporarily closed at 2020-09-23 08:00 UTC while we complete some OF maintenance tasks. The amount of downtime is expected to take up to one hour, but probably less.
It is, as can be expected from the Pi's specs and this being an unsupported installation, bog slow. The Pi's processor isn't exactly a speed demon and all rendering is done via software due to no hardware acceleration being available (yet, at least).Yeah, why would anyone ruin a perfectly good computer by putting Windows on it...?
On a serious note, how usable is it?
Is there any software available for ARM Windows?
I suspect it's no longer compatible with Windows CE of the 00s, the last time i saw such a combination.
Funny you say that, because i actually ended up writing a simple service manager for looking after my processes after getting frustrated with systemd.The tl;dr of the below is that systemd should be purged with fire if you have it installed (which Raspbian uses by default, and maybe exclusively on more recent releases).
https://www.elektor.com/raspberry-pi-4-b-1-gb-ramRaspberry Pi 4 B offers ground-breaking increases in processor speed, multimedia performance, memory, and connectivity compared to the prior-generation Raspberry Pi 3 B+, while retaining backwards compatibility and similar power consumption. For the end user, Raspberry Pi 4 B provides desktop performance comparable to entry-level x86 PC systems.
This product’s key features include a high-performance 64-bit quad-core processor, dual-display support at resolutions up to 4K via a pair of micro-HDMI ports, hardware video decode at up to 4Kp60, up to 4 GB of RAM, dual-band 2.4/5.0 GHz wireless LAN, Bluetooth 5.0, Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0, and PoE capability (via a separate PoE HAT add-on).
The dual-band wireless LAN and Bluetooth have modular compliance certification, allowing the board to be designed into end products with significantly reduced compliance testing, improving both cost and time to market.
There are other boards around though that try to be less versatile and focus more on certain performance attributes.Hm, i would have preferred a more compact version of Compute Module or Zero. Trying to scale up the performance feels like a wrong way to go these days.
