Sorry, this is entirely and completely wrong.  AVRPROG is old and
unmaintained software that covers *just* the AVR910 protocol, runs
only on Win32 systems, and can only and solely handle COM1 through

AVRDUDE in contrast handles some 60+ of different programming
adapters, using at least two dozens of different host protocols,
ranging from simple manual bit-banging the ISP protocol on the host,
through virtually all Atmel-supplied tools in a single program (rather
than one program per tool), running on Win32 systems as well (at
least) Linux, MacOS X, *BSD and Solaris.

The only thing AVRPROG handles which AVRDUDE does not want to handle
for legal reasons is decrypting the STK500 firmware files (those with
the suffix .ebn).

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
