Raspberry Pi is gaining new heights by rapidly maturing as; after Microsoft made Windows 10 IoT core supporting the Raspberry Pi 2 , now a new version FreeBSD operating system is also deployable on Raspberry Pi devices, called RaspBSD . FreeBSD (Berkeley Software Distribution) is an open source Unix-like advanced computer operating system used to power modern servers, desktops and embedded systems. Though FreeBSD-CURRENT has supported Raspberry Pi since November 2012 and Raspberry Pi 2 since March 2015, RaspBSD will support the Pi models B and B+. As Raspberry Pi is a full fledged ARM system, FreeBSD/ARM is contributing to the list of the third-party operating system which support Raspberry Pi. This is not an official release as yet, the FreeBSD developers have made an image (Beta version) available for the users to play around with the Operating System and give their feedback and suggestions for the issues they encounter.

In the month of February 2015, second generation Raspberry Pi was made available and was commonly known as Raspberry Pi 2 . Buzz was that Windows 10 will be supporting the hardware for its compatibility with the smart objects, popularly known as the ‘ Internet of Things ’. So, finally the Free version of Windows 10 for Raspberry Pi 2 is here. On Monday, public release of Microsoft’s Windows 10 for IoT Core, offering support for the Raspberry Pi 2 and the Minnowboard Max , was made available. Microsoft’s goal of spreading Windows 10 to a Billion user is going to get fulfilled with this specially trimmed edition for small and embedded devices, that may or may not have screens. Also for devices with screens, Windows 10 IoT Core operating system does not have a Windows shell experience; rather you can write a Universal Windows app that is the interface and ‘personality’ for your device. It’s neither the Windows, as we already are familiar with, nor a substitut
