Yes but what percentage of shipped AVRs run code that was compiled with gcc
vs. that with IAR? I'm willing to bet that less than 25% of all AVR revenue
comes from chips that run gcc. Once you're paying someone a decent salary to
code your product it isn't a large step to spend a few thousand $ on tools.
Guys like me (and probably quite a few of you) buy only a handful of AVRs
per year. Of course I wouldn't buy any if it weren't for avr-gcc :-)

As sad as it us for us, it makes sense for Atmel to stay close to IAR.
