Yeah. I guess IDE would be the wrong terminology.
The Willem Programmer has a real nice Windows Interface. It even has
graphics that show you the correct DIP switch and jumpers for the device
that you select. That way you don't have to go back to the manual when
you select a different ROM / EEPROM to program. And... It's fast. I've
been working on a project using 27256's and the programmer will burn and
verify one in less than 1 second!

AFAIK, the entire project is open source / open architecture. The only
LINUX resources I saw run under WINE (Windows emulator)... WTF!

See ya,
