The table omits some significant microcontroller feature: Ethernet port.

I would have to agree with Walter. Why spend all that extra timne learning how to use another vendors toolchain when you have already spent the time with the one you learned. Odds are good that the mfgr you have chosen has enough micros to keep you satisfied and on the front edge of technology or else they wouldn't be much of an MCU mfgr.

One tends to use the tools you know. If you (or your predecessor) had the foresight to pick a processor vendor that covers a large spectrum of potential performance needs the shortest path (inertia) is to stay with the same vendor. Not having to buy new tools, skipping the learning curve for a new debugger, and knowing how documentation is organized count for a lot.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
