    Interesting package
    It says free download, and does not mention restrictions ?

    Is this compatible with any PC Basics,
    (eg FreeBASIC, or OpenOffice.org Basic, which has a nice IDE )

    - that would allow users to test algorithms in a PC environment, and
    a PC end in a similar language...

    One suggestion would be to add a SIZE column to your MCU's page ?

    Be interesting to see how large the StickOS is, on the various cores
    (or two Size columns, if there is a minimalist / full feature option?)

    Perhaps some 'pins' could be added via the parallel port ?
    Does that PC simulation include Step/Watch debug features ?
