The licensed version of the 2GB/32GB board comes with a full copy of Windows 10 Home. There is also a 4GB/64GB version that comes either unlicensed or with a copy of Windows 10 Enterprise; RS is not currently offering that.

The US affiliate of RS, Allied Electronics, does not offer the LattePanda at present. US customers can buy it directly from the manufacturer's site.

mmmm, At £95 for the basic board I'm not sure where this product fits. We use lots of RPi3's and Arduinos both of which have a massive amounts of hardware and software available. With RPi3 having Bluetooth and Wifi both as AP and client, even the connectivity is not a must-have point for the LattePanda.

And, of course, there is Windows 10. Apart from any licensing issues (£70 without) there will be continual updates followed by a final support date in, maybe, five years time. With Linux on RPi we are always in control with access to the source code. That is good for our projects which often have in-service lives of 10 years.

Bearing in mind Intel's short foray into this market I think that any new entrants do have a mountain to climb. Even RPi workalikes (OrangePi etc) don't capture large market share. And £95 buys a lot of the alternatives...

And a final query; If you purchase the non-Win10 version how can you run Visual Studio?

Puzzling...the "licensed" version costs more - Win10 IoT is a free download, so are they selling it with a full copy of Win10? I guess we're paying for the board support package - I had a look on https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/iot/docs/hardwarecompatlist and they're still only listing the Pi , dragon board and Minnowboard Max

An interesting combination and good to see a successful Kickstarter. Definitely, an easier combination to get started with than the Win10 IOT or .Net Embedded.
If you wanted to experiment before you buy then you could plug a UNO into your PC and use one of the Firmata C# libraries
