- In regards to which image you should choose it really depends on the needs of your project. From our side, we’d be able to help you better if you use the Yocto image, since it’s the only image we support for the Edison. The Debian image, for example is not supported and it’s out of our area of expertise, so we won’t be of much help if any issues occur.
- The link to download the latest Edison image can be found in the Downloads Section here: https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/edison/downloads . The specific file is labeled:”Latest Yocto* Poky image”.
- The iot-devkit-prof-dev-image-edison-20160606 is the latest Yocto image. It’s the same one found in the link: “Latest Yocto* Poky image” from the previous point. For Windows 32 bit there’s a specific guide to install drivers and flash the image.

Thank you for letting us know you flashed the newest image and managed to install NLTK. In regards to your memory question, a newly flashed image in the Edison has the following disk space:
Then, after installing NLTK using the method from https://communities.intel.com/thread/110215 the directory /dev/root was used in an 80%. You can check the result of df –h below.
The difference between this 80% and the 83% you’re receiving is because of other packages you have installed. This means that while having the image installed and having the programs you mentioned you installed above, it’s normal to be using around 84%.
Let us know if this answers your question.
