Yes; absolutely. I have an Intel micro-controller coming; and I have the Arduino IDE to support it (should be fun to include). I have been looking at 'big num' support, and if you remember from another thread, I am keen on being able to specify configurable arbitrary digits (within limits). There are some rather nice big num arbitrary digit libraries available... but that is down the road a bit.

I have been reading about Galileo and Edison boards from Intel; seems like the Edison is the way to go from an Intel standpoint (your opinion the same?). I also do not have any problem developing on two (more) devices in parallel (and of course I'm still thinking eventually of a desktop machine that utilizes more than one micro-controller... there is time for all of that.

Thanks for the feedback; let you know what I find out.


Kind regards,
