The  PIC... I have no nice words for the PIC.  It's a CPU architecture   
kept alive by Donald Rumsfeld himself (He was the CEO of G.I. back  in  
the '70's), and surely he must have made a deal with the Devil  to  
make it as successful as it is.  How's that for a  religious  
argument? :-)

Keeping it secular, what's with the PIC bashing?
Surely it's a case of horses for courses, and there's been enough  successful 
commercial, as well as hobby, products based on PICs to suggest you  might be 
just a wee bit out of touch with some parts of the real world:-)
