"Last time I looked, the relationship between Win10 (on real PCs) and Win10 IoT (on embedded devices) was similar to that between Windows NT (on real PCs) and Windows CE (on embedded devices)."

Yes - I know that.

My point is that it might not be a bad thing to have another OS available.

Occasionally it's useful to be able to fire up a windows VM - for whatever purpose.

I'd not mind having a Win10 minimal (or whatever they call the low end Win10 desktop) on a spare SD card. Win10IoT seems utterly pointless anyway, RasPi or no RasPi...
