[TriEmbed] Any suggestions for AVR/ARM development environment and tools

I really can vouch for Atmel Studio.  Even though it is available only on
Windows, it makes up for it with rock-solid robustness.  It has that Eclipse
look and feel, but is much more solidly programmed in C++ rather than Eclipse's
Java.  It is hard sometimes to configure your build environment just right, but
that's because the tool is so highly configurable -- once you get your external
tools and how you want to do things dialed in, it performs solid everytime after
that.  I like it also for its compatibility several programming dongles, not
just Atmel's, but several open-source ISP/ICSP programmers & JTAG cables, and
several professional in-circuit debuggers as well.  I like also for it
compatibility to tons of processors, and not just Atmel's, but other ARM
systems, SOM's and SOC's as well.  And I have integrated it with Google Test to
provide automated unit testing whose error output puts you right back into the
IDE and the troublesome spot.
