Intel EOL'd the Arduino/Genuino 101 board. The end is so complete that you cannot download the drivers using the Board Manager.

To make matters worse, my old Ubuntu machine, with an old Arduino IDE, is unable to upload to my existing 101 boards (PRESS MASTER RESET error).

  1. Should I junk these boards?
  2. Is there a 3rd party site that is hosting the drivers?
  • Arduino's brief partnership with Intel was an abortion that should never have happened. Junk the boards and use something sensible. – Majenko Jul 9 '20 at 8:50
  • Ugh... hate throwing electronics in the trash almost as much as I hate wasting my time on a dead end. – user3533030 Jul 9 '20 at 20:02
  • You could always put it on eBay for some other sucker to be disappointed with... – Majenko Jul 9 '20 at 20:12
  • Maybe one day it'll be a collectors' item and be worth millions ;) – Majenko Jul 9 '20 at 20:12
  • This raises the obvious question: How does one determine which Arduino flavor will be supported in the future? I don't need things to last forever, but this is one of the few pieces of electronics I need to throw into the junk heap. – user3533030 Jul 9 '20 at 20:53
