At Build 2015 in San Francisco this week, there has been a large range of announcements wrt Windows 10. The topic of interest here is "Windows 10 IoT Core Insider Preview" as a public release of this for this for the Raspberry Pi 2 was much anticipated. That is now available. The IoT sessions indicate that it is now available not only for that but for a number other contexts. Mention was made of it running on other (yet unreleased) contexts, such as the BeagleBone Black!
The link for downloads and how to get started is: http://ms-iot.github.io/content/GetStarted.htm (Update) Hint: You have to take the survey on Connect and accept the terms before getting access to the downloads.

Thx David Jones
Thanks David for the comment, Powershell fails on Windows10 but it works fine on Windows8.1... I confirm ;-) I'm now connected to the RPi2 on my Powershell console.
Initial Powershell Config: ========================= I had some problems doing the specified config. I was so doing on a Win 10 system. When I ran PS on my Win 8.1 (the fixed Laptop) it worked. Set-Item WSMan:\localhost\Client\TrustedHosts -Value 192.168.0.26 ... Ran OK , two Y's required remove-module psreadline -force ...Didn't work but OK net start WinRM .. said it had already started. Enter-PsSession -ComputerName 192.168.0.26 -Credential localhost\Administrator ... gave me most grief on Win 10. On Win 8.1 worked OK. Note you do use Administrator and that given password. :)
I downloaded all of the bits including purchasing a RPi2 and was ready to start. Then my 6 month old laptop died!. I resurrected my Core 2 Duo with Win 10 so I'm running with that. Ready to start again. Got all of the bits there. PS HP replaced my mainboard in the laptop within 17 hours, in my own home.. service!
