Microsoft is promising to deliver a custom version of its ubiquitous Windows operating system to developers who own Intel's Galileo, which can be used to power and connect to other devices. Essentially, Galileo is like a Raspberry Pi for Windows developers to use to power the next generation of the Internet of Things.
Developers will soon be able to download and install this custom version of Windows on their Galileo boards. Previously, only Galileo boards sent by Microsoft to a few developers came pre-loaded with Windows.
The OS is said to be a non-commercial version of Windows that's based on Microsoft's consumer release of Windows 8.1.
This version is also said to also be compatible with Arduino as well.
If you're a developer, what other tools are you hoping that Microsoft and Intel will help provide? For consumers, how do you envision the future of the connected home with Windows, Xbox, and Windows Phone serving as controllers?
