“Intel has discontinued three of its offerings for the Internet of Things and embedded device markets.
The chipmaker said in a series of low-key product updates that it would be killing off the Edison, Galileo and Joule compute modules and boards over the second half of the year.”

They are bloated from feeding at the trough of Wintel all these decades. I recommend ARMed computers for just about everything. I’m replacing aged Intel/AMD products with new ARMed devices. It costs less, takes up less space and uses less energy to get the job done. Of course, I run Debian GNU/Linux and not That Other OS…

Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
