My feelings exactly.

Right now, on the Windows platform, there is GDB+AVaRICE 
which allows use of the JTAG ICE. What is needed to replace 
AVR Studio is having the SimulAVR project ported to 
Windows! AFAIK, this now the only "major" open source AVR 
project that is stable, that hasn't been built for Windows.

It' also been pointed out, however, that SimulAVR is not 
quite as good of simulator as AVR Studio is. So more work 
would need to be done on this project, under Ted's 
direction. And I think a lot of people know that Ted is 
perpetually swamped!
