Atmel Studio is based on MS Visual Studio.  Whether that is good or bad I'll leave to you :-)

But Microchip are pretty good at supporting their old devices.

Indeed those AVR32DB and similar look just like PIC, even the datasheet sounds like written by the same guys. Might give it a try, although something tells me Atmel studio will not be developped any more, so even if those chips are supported there, they might be the last ones.

And what is most pleasing, their stock quantities are usually 4-digit numbers!
