I seem to be going in circles with this project.
After spending several hours trying to figure out the ILI9341 Seedstudio 2.8 TFT display problem using the Arduino IDE, I changed direction and loaded the Intel System Studio IOT edition.
There were examples of ILI9341 class in the UPM libraries, so I was hopeful for a solution to my display troubles.

The System studio software stopped 3 times during install complaining about other required software missing on the computer.
The first was a program called Docker.
Docker is some sort of compiler helper that wraps programs in a container with required libraries and such. I'm not sure yet exactly what it helps.
The next thing the System studio installer complained about was JAVA JDK and RE
You can't just load the RE, or the compiler will complain later requiring the JDK, since the JDK includes the RE, just install the JDK.
Clear as mud, eh?
After some issues with firewalls and admin privileges, Intel System Studio was finally installed (4 hours later)
After install, I had to run the Edison setup again because I forgot the SSH and WiFi parameters and password from the first install.
After that, I was able to talk to the board, compile and run the Blinky example.
Since my PC was hard wired, and the Edison was on WiFi, the PC had a hard time finding the Edison board on the network, so I plugged in a USB WiFi dongle to the PC and then all was good.
