I'm very very new to galileo gen 2 and linux os (yocto/debian).

Is it possible to have a desktop environment on galileo gen 2? Which OS should be installed in it, debian or yocto?

Hi LjMercado,

Galileo is not intended to be for desktop usage, maybe other cards, such as Raspberry are.

I think both OS, Debian and Yocto can be installed and used on Galileo, but yocto is the one supported and suggested by Intel.

HTH,

Fernando.
