That little Arduino board is an interesting device, though I am not a big fan of Arduino. Even as I am stepping into the 32bit world with ARM Cortex M, I find most of the library functions for peripheral initialization not much easier than just initializing the registers themselves. From what I have heard with Arduino, most people struggle once they start to get outside the standard set of libraries, but perhaps I should reserve my judgement until I have tried it.
