free galileo board from MS

<< < (4/4)

I can confirm that I also received confirmation emails for both stages of the process.

we'll have to wait and see what, if anything, actually comes in the post

It's sufficiently vague in what it says that I suspect no hardware is forthcoming, ie.


We’ll provide samples and documentation and we’ll show you how to create your own fun projects ...

This is in reference to the SDK/software.

Post-submit, the wording was along the lines of, (IIRC): "... we'll let you know when your kit has shipped ..."

Still sufficiently vague as it could be just a CD/DVD with requisite documentation/software.

Be that as it may, since I can't get the followup email maybe I'm just skeptical.  ;)

The post-submit email said essentially the same thing:

Thank you for signing up for the Windows Developer Program for IoT.  We’ll let you know when your kit has shipped.
Thank you,

Microsoft IoT Team

Also, the Internet of Things (IoT)? Is that in any way related to this?

Is Microsoft just trolling us all?

I did get the email yesterday.

If you're still waiting to hear about your free board from MS, you can stop holding your breath. You're not getting one.

Here's an excerpt from an email I just received from Microsoft (emphasis added):

While we are continuing our program, we have finished allocating all the Intel Galileo boards that we purchased. If you were allocated a kit then you should have received either a tracking number or an email saying a kit was allocated to you. If you haven’t received either of those two emails you will still be able to participate in the Windows Developer Program for IoT using a retail board.
