What the Galileo tries to do is meld the ease of Arduino's hardware manipulation with the power of a fully operational Linux operating system
from what i understand of the Yun, it also combines the Arduino with the Linux world.aside from the obvious specification differences, Galileo has more memory space (Flash, SRAM & EEPROM) while the Yun has better GPIO(?) pins (more and better current handling capabilities), what else would you point out as the core differences ?i'm guessing the fact that the Yun has DUAL processors, while the Galileo has the Arduino AND the Linux (handler?) on one chip is key - is there a performance advantage in having ONE processor rather than having to "interface"(?) TWO processors(/controller) ?

One thing that I however already noticed for scouring over some Galileo related forums, is that the Galileo has issues with the I/O speed on the I/O pins.

If the separate processors on the Yun are a curse or a blessing, that might depend on how you are trying to use it. From a lot of posts in here, it seems a lot of people have a problem grasping the basic concept that needs to the deployed compared to the "old" way of using just an Uno (or Leonardo).I will likely get around this weekend to play a bit more with my Galileo haven't really had a chance to dive more into it since I got mine earlier this week...Ralf
Galileo V.S. Yun
mini PCI Express (mPCIe) slot: Yes/No
RS-232 serial port: Yes/No
USB device port: Yes/No
Real Time Clock: Yes/No
Build in Wifi: No/Yes
Galileo has very impression and updated documentation.
Two killer drawback of Galileo:software emulate MCU. Slow.
x86 infrastructure v.s. ARM/MIP infrastructure at embed, battery power application. too much juice.
Come again? You do realize that the Quark X1000 is not "your father's x86 chip? You know that they use the very same chip in the SD card size Edison, don't you?

I've got both a Yun and a Galileo, and there are pros and cons to both. Generally speaking the Yun comes out ahead for me- for the primary reason of this community. The Galileo community is very new,
and there's issues with getting the Galileo to do some things the Yun does out of the box:
Cons for the Galileo:Wireless requires an additional card (supported ones can be hard to find)Wireless requires a full Linux build on a microSD card
Galileo has issues with some high capacity cards (Several 32GB and 16GB cards did not work for me)
No mounting/project plates for the Galileo, so I had to make my own (http://www.polyideas.com/#/project-plate-for-the-intel-galileo/)
Lack of package management on the GalileoDifficult to get a full Linux distro loaded on the Galileo
Some of these issues are similar for the Yun, but the fact that the Yun has a better community to report issues and workarounds helps considerably. One drawback for both is the fact they use different versions of the IDE.
I had actually ordered a Galileo and while waiting for it to ship read up on it. I cancelled the order when I saw that "arduino" input/output is very slow. This guy decided it was roughly a 500x difference: http://www.drdobbs.com/embedded-systems/galileo-the-slowest-fast-computer-around/240165716 The Galileo seems to emulate the AVR hardware in software.
