Only reason to run Windows 10 is as a desktop. All other purposes are pretty much useless.
Anyway, after doing some more research and looking at successful RPi projects, my general impression is this.
- Robotics (autonomous and otherwise, especially with ROS)
- Small projects that require a UI of any kind, like bicycle computers and stuff like that
- Unplugged units driven by battery
Less good for
Arcade machines (need a bit more power)
SOHO Servers (Can be done, but not ideal, though power consumption is awesome)
Small projects requiring little to no intelligence (Use Arduinos instead)
HTPC stuff (Hit and miss, can work depending on your use case)
Heavy duty servers
So yeah, I can see if your use case is one of the latter ones, then this SBC could be worth checking out.
