That's correct.

I'm not sure what you mean on this.

If you use Programmers Notepad 2.03, which comes with the 20030312 
release of WinAVR, you can setup Tools that call any command-line 
program (such as make) and it will capture the output of the program.

Here is a good link (from Kai Klenovsek) that shows graphically how 
to set up PN2 with make and makefile:

PN 2.03 does not have the capability to click on error / warning 
messages and go to the file / line, yet. It is planned to have this 
feature in the next release (2.04).

The nice thing about using PN2 versus AVR Studio 3 (AS3), is that on 
PN2 you don't need to use the gcc*.bat files that come with WinAVR. 
PN2 can successfully capture the output if you're using Win NT/2K/XP. 
AS3 has a difficult time doing this on these platforms and this is 
why those batch files are needed for AS3.
