Thanks to both of you. Windows users have even more choices.
Which one too choose for NT/2000?

I've tried to setup a list of freely(!) available ISP programs
with pro and cons. Please note, that this list is incomplete 
and parts may be wrong. And _PLEAZZE_ do not start an ISP war. 
Honor the time and effort people put into this software.

Send flames to my email address, not to the list. Also
email me directly, if you think this is completely OT.

Marek's uisp:
+ Source code available (GCC)
+ STK500 support (not yet completed)
+ Marek uses the giveio.sys driver for NT/2000 support.
  Binaries and sources for this driver are available.
+ Command line support for make
- No GUI version
- No Win32 binaries. You need Cygwin to compile it.
- No Windows installer

Mike's uisp:
+ Source code available (C++ Builder 5.0)
+ Win32 binaries available.
+ Command line support for make
+ Windows installer
- No GUI version
- Mike uses TVicHW32 driver from EnTech. This driver
  requires registration (USD 99, no source code).

Kanda's AVRISP 2.7 Beta 1:
(Note that previous version don't support NT/2000)
+ GUI version
+ Windows installer
- No command line support for make
- Nasty "list out of bounds" bug disables automatic
- Outdated and incomplete online help, tips partially
  hidden, launch from GUI fails.
- No source code
- Some GUI functions (init, scrolling) are buggy.
? I haven't figured out how Kanda does NT port access.

Claudio's PonyProg:
+ GUI version with many functions.
+ Not just an AVR programmer. Supports many devices, 
  even PICs.
+ HTML based online help
+ Windows installer
- No command line support for make
- No source code
- GUI is kind of "overloaded".
? When I tried this on NT for the first time, it worked.
  After playing around, installing and de-installing
  other software, it stopped working. I haven't figured
  out how Claudio does NT port access.
