I've been a great fan of embedded computers for ages. I love the .NET Micro Framework, Gadgeteer and Arduino. And now there is another device to play with, the Intel Galileo. It looks a bit like an Ardunino and it has pins in all the right places to be an Arduino. But actually it is a rather powerful computer based on the new Intel Quark chip.
You can program it in the same way as you would an Arduino device, but what I'm really interested in doing is harnessing all that full on programming power on the device. I've ordered one, and I'm looking forward to playing with it when it gets here.
