Great MCU but really like the Harmony story too

Hey Max, I really liked the features of the MCU too, great core performance, 28Msample/s ADC, crypto engine, and field upgradability via 2MBytes of internal flash, but I was also excited by MPLAB Harmony effort that Microchip co-announced with the 'MZ 32.

This is an Integrated Software Framework for PIC32 that essentially integrates the licensing, resale, and support of both Microchip as well as third-party middleware, drivers, libraries and RTOSes.

I like this bringing together of an ecosystem so developers don't have to spend half their time looking for compatible code and paying licence fees and get off the ground quicker - big deal these days (or any day).
