After hearing a bit of buzz about this I signed up, and was able to confirm via a twitter post from a Microsoft IoT (Internet of Things) team member that indeed they will be sending out SDK kits with an Intel Galileo board for free to developers. They should be shipping “soon” http://www.reddit.com/r/arduino/comments/2a036p/intel_galileo/cir2q1x

Not sure how long this offer is good for.
“Share and Enjoy!”
