Reach to the Stars with the help of Microsoft

Microsoft want to bring Windows to a whole new class of small devices, whether it is a smart coffee mug, a robot, or anything else you could even think of. To help this happen Microsoft are giving away Intel Galileo development boards to software developers of all ages, skill or experience levels, and what do you need to do to to get one of these coveted boards? Simply sign up and cross your fingers.

Don't think that you have no chance of success here, several of our forum members have already reported that they will be receiving units form Microsoft, I look forward to seeing what they can produce with these boards.

Intel's Galileo and its clever little Quark processor which is essentially aimed directly at the rivaling Raspberry Pi, but it has one main difference, it's x86 CPU, which could be one reason why Microsoft is interested in getting these out there given how unsuccessful Windows RT was.

Full specs of the Intel Galileo Development Board are available here, and to sign up for your chance to get one of these coveted development kits Here.
