The board description shows MPLAB support but I can't really tell if the IDE is part of the kit. Do you need to pay for it or is it free with the board?

As far as I know, the IDE is already free with compilers(non-optimized versions) for every series (PIC16/18/24/32). BTW here is a free tiny board which I have designed for hobbyists. All source is free and downloadable: http://electrodesigns.net/blog/pic32mx1-board/

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
