Intel's Quarky Arduino Adventure

Filed under
Linux
Hardware

With all the cornucopia of Valve-related announcements for gamers over the past few weeks, it may be difficult to imagine that the Linux world could have any more good news in store. That supremely encouraging gaming news, surely, was enough to last us a few good months here in the Linux blogosphere.

Well think again! In yet another expression of the never-ending fabulousness that is open source, none other than our friends at Intel have been busy at work with the interests of a different set of users in mind -- specifically, makers and students.

"Introducing the Galileo development board, the first product in a new family of Arduino-compatible development boards featuring Intel architecture," the chip giant wrote in its press release last week. "The platform is easy to use for new designers and for those looking to take designs to the next level."

Yes, that's right, Linux fans -- Intel and Arduino.
