I don't forsee anyone breadboarding the Galileo anytime soon. It doesn't seem to be open anymore.

I think you're wrong. The future of Arduino is clearly "more power to do more complex things", still with ease and with the support of the community.
I don't know what do you expect from an Arduino board to be considered open.

I observed a child asking for an atmega328p, a 16Mhz xtal, breadboard etc in an electronics store, i gave that kid an ftdi adapter i had on me.
They went home, and i'm speculating, they built an Arduino.

In 199X i saved for 8051 mcu development board, which cost lots, i had to borrow books i could not afford, & the only support was subscriptions or letter replies. Because of lack of community, and understanding, the 8051 went into the too hard basket. Later on, Parallax released the Basic Stamp, It was a very exciting time (so i remember) just around the corner was Microchips 16F pic, i have in possession various dev boards dating back to 1989, lots of literature covering, hex, assembler, opcodes. These boards were expensive, lacked free software & lacked community (Exception to Microchip).

Arduino is the 1st 8bit micro-ecology to address, cost, understanding & openness.

Quite the opposite.

I once knew a man who encoded rocket trajectories & simulations in binary, he confessed that he was taught by a man that knew assembler. His son grew up to code in C/C++, i guess his father didn't teach him?
I was 14/15 & excited  to see a program this person wrote, & having been there when his father added "You could have done that in less than 10 lines & not 100".

This is not the best example i know!

The hardware has been there for 30 years, every renaissance period of the 8bit mcu.
It's not the hardware, its the code & the way in which it is utilized to manipulate the hardware.

In another decade, the 8bit will make another revival tour.

Watch as the 8bit Arduino'ists are slowly drowned out leaving a handful of dedicated enthusiasts.
It will be no surprise to me as large manufacturers milk the cash cow dry & inevitably people will only remember the board/program that did it all as enthusiasm wanes.

Taking the openness out of the box, modifying it to licensed hardware & only leaving an edge for professional development.

The efficacy of "More power" has been a long standing tradition in this diverse field of Technology.

The leap from 8bit to 32bit cores & beyond, the natural flow would have dictated 16bit. So if we follow this trend, how ill the Processing / Wiring IDE be able to properly leverage or better yet, unleash the true performance of the monstrous core.
The answer it seems, is quite obvious to me, that the larger manufactures will release there versioning of which IDE is more suitable to their products, that will naturally have less bugs and handle the cores more efficiently.

And this is the downfall of the genre known as Arduino.

yeah, it's really terrible the way that Due conversations of displaced AVR conversations on the forums in the last year or so...  :-;
