    Ah, I signed up to this program and am a dab hand in this area. I sincerely hope I get a board sent out to me. Very exciting.

    If we are selected, when can we expect to receive our kits?

    I've built something some may find useful when working with IoT. You can control your app/device using SMS: http://www.smscmd.net/

    The graphic shows a PowerShell logo for "Apps". I'm curious what if any plans are for PowerShell on Windows IoT? I imagine that would require a .NET environment, I think I've heard that is on a roadmap. I've not heard mention of PowerShell in that context though. I'm also curious about CIM and or OMI integration into IoT. That seems like a logical inclusion at some point as well.

    I have played around with Linux on the retail Galileo board so I'm anxious and excited to play around with Windows on a Galileo.

    I wish this article had explained what IoT was; I've never heard of it.

    "I wish this article had explained what IoT was; I've never heard of it."

    Google (or Bing) is your friend. In a nutshell, it's an acronym for "Internet of Things."

    What it is, in rough terms, could be termed Universal Connectivity of Devices, where a device is anything from a mousetrap to a clock to a chicken coop to a supercomputer.

    Is it "IoT" because they couldn't make it "IoS" (Internet of Stuff) without confusing everyone?

    Maybe a better name would be "The UniNet"

    But would people confuse that with the *other" UN? And "TUN" would make many think of a giant barrel/container of beer.
