True, they could have bought Atmel out purely to kill it off, but they didn't, and the AVR stuff is still going strong under new ownership.

I've actually wondered about moving across to AVR myself for various reasons / projects. But I'd still want to program it in assembly!

But actually I have to say they’ve carried on supporting all the devices, whereas for example Infineon bought International Rectifier and have since obsoleted half of the stuff we have used from IR, resulting in our clients requesting assistance in approving substitute parts FOC.
