Barring a significant change in course, history tells us that the computers of tomorrow will be faster, smaller, better and cheaper than the computers of today. We began with warehouse-sized machines that were barely capable of basic algebra, and weâ€™ve arrived at the Raspberry Pi. For those unfamiliar with the term, itâ€™s a full-fledged computer that can fit snugly inside of an Altoids tin, and it costs just $35. Contrast that with the towering beige box that millions of Americans were purchasing from the likes of Dell and Gateway a score ago, and youâ€™ll realize that weâ€™ve come a very long way in a brief period of time.
Intriguingly, Microsoft has announced that Windows 10 will be available for free through developer channels for the Raspberry Pi.
