For what it's worth, I too dislike the newer AVR Studio - partly

Quite a few people like Eclipse - I pretty much only hear good things
about it. But I'm too old to change my text hacking mindset from text
based toolsets - and I'm welded onto the gnu toolchain, across a number
of target platforms, having used it exclusively in the latter half of a
quarter century of embedded development. (ctags and a few bits and
pieces give me enough of Eclipse's bells and whistles to keep me
happy.) So long as that's convenient on linux, I'll continue to use


I like Eclipse these days - it's much better than it used to be. I find the navigation tools, syntax highlighting, and as-you-type checking to be very useful. But I do all the builds using external makefiles rather than Eclipse's project management - it's an editor only, for the most part (I use it as a debugger too on some targets). I like to be able to ssh into my development machine, edit files with nano (a simple text-based editor for those that don't know), and rebuild with "make".
