Can I use an Arduino Yun like the Arduino Uno


I know it looks like a dumb question, and I am almost certain it can be used liked an ordinary Arduino Uno.

But because I do not have a Yún, I need confirmation that the Arduino Yún can be used through the Arduino IDE just like the Arduino Uno is used. So if I do not want to use the wifi + linux processor I know I can.

From what I looked up It looks like I can.

I just need some confirmation.


No the avr processor on the Yun is not the one used in the Uno. It can however be used as a Leonardo.


That meaning I can discard (not use) the wifi+linux processor in one project or so, using the Yun as a normal Leonardo?

Thanks for your help!
