Hi from Australia!

Thank you for such an excellent article. I have been looking for a while for accurate information that was easy to follow to get me started on a project that will eventually involve using a Pi-camera to capture pictures automatically into an Excel spreadsheet. Most tutorials that I have tried assume a greater level of knowledge than I have, or seem to have been written from memory and something vital but not obvious has been left out.

Your article just hit the spot! From another site, I learnt how to load Raspbian onto an SD card (shows my level of knowledge!) 30 minutes later following your article, I am sending messages from Windows to pi and vice versa! Still a long way from my final goal, but a lot closer than I was half an hour ago.

There is one thing that needs to be fixed though. In the instructions for publishing, there should be quotes around the topic name.

Again, an excellent and very useful article!!

Thank You!!!!!

The easiest way on Windows 10 is to use WSL , read this post on how to do that, literally two steps.
