At the start of this week the new quad core Raspberry Pi 2 mini PC launched, and during the week MAKE were able to catch up with its creator Eben Upton from the Pi Foundation for an interview discussing the new computer’s features in detail.
To re-cap the Raspberry Pi 2 is available to purchase for $35 and is powered a 900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 processor that can be overclock to 1.2GHz fairly safely, supported by 1GB LPDDR2 SDRAM.
Microsoft has announced that they will be releasing free version of their Windows 10 operating system to run on the new Raspberry Pi 2 computer and the Linux Snappy Ubuntu Core is also available to use. Eben Upton, Founder of the Raspberry Pi Foundation explains :
“I am incredibly excited to have Snappy Ubuntu Core running on the Raspberry Pi 2. Ubuntu has been a key missing piece on our operating system support for the Raspberry Pi. We are looking forward to seeing what new things people are able to do with Snappy Ubuntu Core on the Raspberry Pi 2,”
