Microsoft announces end of support for Intel Galileo. I still have to open the box and it is already obsolete !!

Raspberry Pi seems to be platform of choice going forward.

We’ve seen some fantastic innovation with the platform, but unfortunately, it does not meet the minimum hardware requirements for Windows 10 IoT Core. Please click here to learn more.
