    Why Arduino ??


      HI All ,


      Why Arduino is used over the Intel Galileo  when it has the operating system inside . User space application can be created for different application .

      Another question is , Arduino has anything to do with the operating system ?  or its just produces a firmware .

          The Arduino sketch is uploaded as a process running in the OS. The board is compatible with the Arduino IDE and it's possible to write a sketch like in the regular Arduino boards, but that is not the only way to use the Galileo board. Regarding the second question, the Arduino part doesn't do anything with the OS, the sketches uploaded run as services in the OS. The latest sketch uploaded is stored in the "sketch" directory.
