I know that ARM is all the rage actually, and I also have an STMF4Discovery board, but I want to know various devices and brands, call it curiosity, but I think its an advantage to be able to program at least avr's, pic's(I only mess with pic24 or higher), msp430 and ARM(currently only stm32f4).

Wow, the threads turned into a three-way scrap between AVR, Microchip and ARM... I diddnt see that coming! :-DD

Always amusing, in reality, you use the device that has the feature-set that gets the job done.

Hobby mindset is different, for various reasons, device familiarity, maximum peripherals etc.

Myself, I like to get the top of the range of a particular MCU for development/experimentation, but you can be sure the MCU in the final job will be reduced to a version with the actual peripheral set required for the job and nothing more.

And here's the rub: often all brands have one that gets the job done for a similar price :)
