No so much tools as a pain in the a**!
It has taken two months to upgrade from 3.1 to 4.5. Unbelievable! And even then I had to email practically anybody I could at Freescale!
I would'nt mind so much if they were any good and did'nt require a mortgage to buy.
If a company like Freescale wants to sell processors then it needs to look after the people who develop for them and use their tools.
There are other 8/16/32 bit processor makers out there. And it's the software developer who decide which one to use!
