I only know about the MSP430 what I found in a few hours of "window
shopping" with TI, Digi-Key (my great reality check whether a chip
really exists in the real world), and Google (reality check for
development tools).

Chips that I've actually worked with are Microchip PIC16 (aka spawn of
evil), Cypress PSoC (amazing flexibility meets a retarded CPU core),
and Atmel AVR (old skool but comfty).

Heh, and that one's EOL, so it's definitely going away in GTA04 ;-)
