[TriEmbed] FreeRTOS Tutorial Book hardware-specific editions

I found a review online which stated "The LPC17xx edition includes
eighteen examples written specifically for the LPC17xx Cortex-M3 using
the free LPCXpresso IDE and compiler" so maybe they updated it.

The MSP432s (which many of us bought recently) has a freeRTOS port.
Hmmm... which is better: CCS or LPCXpresso?
 
Dev boards are cheap, free time isn't!
