Other than voltage, there are other issues with compatibility. Mainly I/O pin speed. For instance, the DHT11 sensor cannot be used with a Galileo board, because the I/O speed is too slow. https://communities.intel.com/message/216870#216870
I am not sure if any of the Ethernet, WiFi, or SD card shields would work. But using the onboard Ethernet and SD card work. Also adding in a mPCIe WiFi card allows you to use the WiFi like you would with a shield. So, really there is no need for those shields on Galileo.
Today, Amazon and Newegg are shipping them for $59.
The pre-built Linux image only works with two wireless cards Intel N 135 or N 6205.
Any WiFi card that has a Linux driver should work. I personally have installed an Intel N 6235 and it works great. I followed these instructions. http://www.malinov.com/Home/sergey-s-blog/intelgalileo-addingwifi (though I used different antennas)
You can buy it today from several other distributors. https://communities.intel.com/thread/47443
