Re: You're a real PC if you run Windows.

AIUI, this Win10 is the IoT version, so command line kernel stuff only, no desktop.

No, AIUI it will be graphical ... but probably Metro and store apps rather than a desktop.

As it says in the article:

Although the desktop might not be available, the Windows build will support visual applications. “It is a headed device, HDMI primarily at the moment but then LCD panels in due course".

So, still not really Windows as most users understand it, then.
