I'm looking for a low cost "PC on a board" (Single board computer). I need to run Win7 Embedded or Win7 standard. I need Ethernet, USB, PS2 mouse (I have a track ball with PS2 interface), SATA (for SSD), 1 or 2GB or RAM, basic VGA is enough. Serial port is a must but I could use an USB-to-serial converter. Target price is less than US$200,-

Any idea of the best product I could use?

I Googled and there are a lot of products suitable. So what I ask is some real experience. Don't tell me to use Linux because the application already exists on a standard Windows and redeveloping it for Linux would be too much expensive.

Thanks.

I wonder how long the information stored on a SD memory card will stay valid. I ask because I'm using SD card in my digital camera and plan to store the SD card on the long term.

Will the SD card be still readable after 10 or 20 years? Or at least long enough for me to transfer the images on another support once the SD cards will be obsolete.

Any idea about the best way to store digital images on the long term?

I have some old memories from the first days of digital cameras by the end of the 90's, there's a 16MB Sandisk and a 32MB Toshiba which still work with some files I had in them.

Thanks for the confirmation +Peter Gejdeman . You know, I haven't made the change and I think you're using it way more consistently than myself. My purpose is to communicate with a running process under a service via this IPC method. It's funny we're using the same code.

I haven't done very much stress testing of it. When I saw your posting, I went through and looked into the source code for "MsgWaitForMultipleObjects" and found.. 


File: I:\projects\thirdparty\pipes\Pipes.pas 3 occurrences found on 3 lines
  1804:         case MsgWaitForMultipleObjects(1, hEvent, False, INFINITE, QS_SENDMESSAGE) of
  3283:   while (MsgWaitForMultipleObjects(1, FEmpty, False, INFINITE, QS_SENDMESSAGE) = WAIT_OBJECT_0 + 1) do
  4144:      while (MsgWaitForMultipleObjects(1, hThread, False, INFINITE, QS_ALLINPUT) = WAIT_OBJECT_0 + 1) do


In going through my changelog for the unit, I made several changes for XE2 (as I kept it AnsiString) and one change to the "TPipeListenThread.Create()" (see below). 
  // Increment the thread counter
  FPipeServer.FThreadCount.Increment; // * 2010-12-01: MMC -- Moved this line from just after the "inherited Create(TRUE)" to after the assignment has been made to the property

I would like to use a classic Windows style for a TEdit under Android. I mean the 3D look of a TEdit.

Is there something like that already existing?

Anyone having already tried XE5 with BeagleBone Black single board computer running Android Jelly Bean? At US45,- this single board computer is like Raspberry Pi but with much better specs and able to run XE5 program (I think so because it has a Cortex-A8 processor with Neon extension).

Any thought?

FYI: link toBeagleBone black
