Very nice. A lot of casual observers think Arduino users are stuck with the full Uno/Mega board platform, which is a shame. There are many options ... for example there is the boarduino:

or you can easily mash up your own project using the IC and your own design:

The core of my simple arduino based projects consists of nothing more than an attiny85, 2 caps and a voltage regulator. I still call it arduino, meaning just using the ide

Chet T16:
That's what I thought but you can use it without the bootloader too (seen that in an old blog and had to look it up)

Although, I think I would spend the extra money to get the AVR programmer ($35) over just the FTDI serial to USB breakout board ($15).  Why not have something for a few extra bucks that will program all AVR chips.
