The Mixed Reality Forums here are no longer being used or maintained.
There are a few other places we would like to direct you to for support, both from Microsoft and from the community.
The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.
For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality.
If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers, or in our Microsoft Tech Communities forums at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/mixed-reality/ct-p/MicrosoftMixedReality.
And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.
Hardware and Software Requirements WITHOUT using Emulator
I'm luckily invited as a wave 1 developer, but before purchasing it,
I would like to confirm if it's required to have Win 10 in my PC, if I choose to use HoloLens directly for developing, but not via an emulator.
So far, I only have Win 7 in my PC, and I hope I can still develop apps in Unity or VS.
