Microsoft to end its Windows 10 IoT Core support for Intel's Galileo boards on Nov. 30

Windows 10 IoT Core, the version of Microsoft's latest OS that's made for the "Internet of Things" hardware market, will soon no longer support Intel's Galileo boards. Both the Gen1 and Gen2 versions of those boards will see their Windows 10 IoT support end on November 30.

Microsoft's initial release of Windows 10 IoT Core did support the Gen1 version of Galileo. However, it looks like both versions didn't ultimately work well with the OS, according to a statement from Microsoft:

"As we continue to focus on providing a great experience for Makers with Windows 10 IoT Core, we've made the difficult decision to discontinue Windows support on the Galileo platform. We've seen some fantastic innovation with the platform, but unfortunately, it does not meet the minimum hardware requirements for Windows 10 IoT Core.

Windows 10 IoT Core still supports the Raspberry Pi 2 and Qualcomm's DragonBoard 410c boards.
