    not sure if this can be applied to all users of RPi...
    And I am curious whether MS guys will make DirectX support for that graphic adapter used in RPi.

    Indeed, that will be a big question: what will the DX support be like... and also what will the DirectShow support be like... or will it only have the cut down MF support like Surface 2.

    It looks like even more cut down than that:

    "this won’t be a full Windows 10 environment running desktop applications: rather, it will be a command-line environment, aimed at developers designing IoT (Internet of Things) devices."

    Mmmm, that would be unfortunate. It may still be possible to run TV service on it.

    The articles I've seen about Raspberry Pi 2 + WIn10 all talk about IoT (Internet of Things). For example

    The new Raspberry Pi 2, now with Windows 10 support

    It has now been released on the Raspberry Pi, and is indeed an IoT type of interface, but supports a GUI via the HDMI, which supports DirectX etc.

    Has anyone had a play? I got it loaded and booted up, but I am not a coder, so couldn't take it any further.

    if the tv server could run..u'd still need a way to plug in your tv tuner :/
    if it supported MP's client.. could do away with an expensive client PC.. although it can only support 1080p30 .. and it lacks a Blu-ray drive connection

    That's what network-connected tuners are for. :)

    Agree. And i see no chance to get USB TV Tuner drivers for this platform (because none of hardware manufacturers are interested in doing that for their tuners)
