Well, the microchip one academic option is free. So CCS gives money with
their tools ? :-)

I already switched to 16-bit (33FJA128MC510 and -804) long ago, and am very
happy with them. But I still use the PIC18F60j60 part since there is no
16-bit integrated ethernet part, and as spare replacement for legacy parts.

The PIC32 look interesting, but there is no motorcontrol (quadrature
decoder) in that family yet, something that I require.
