Many have said good things about AVR...including a few people
whose opinions I value, now including you. I plan to check it out
someday. For now, my "tiny" projects use PIC, my "small/medium"
projects use various 8051 implementations, and my "big" projects use
ARM. I will add AVR to that list when I have some time to check it out.
