As the title suggests, I am now sold on the Arduino environment all thanks to a wonderful FREE plugin. Check it out here:

Yes you're right - it is AVR Studio with the Visual Micro Plugin.

You may already know that AVR Studio is based around Visual Studio (which you know and love!) So now that it has the Visual Micro plugin, it is so nice to code for Arduino's (and dare I say it - more fun that programming in Swordfish Basic...)

Never thought I would hear you say that :wink:

I have now installed Visual Micro plugin, took a bit to get it working but now I'm enjoying Intellisense!. So easy adding Compiler controls (For loops, switch statements), saves typing it all out.. 8)

Sorry I didn't get around to showing how to install it all bitfogav, but glad you got it working!

I plan on making some sort of LED game using arduino soon :)
