I had looked at this, apparently too briefly, and had gotten the impression that Xduino wasn't open source (that you had to buy a board to get the software.) I now see that it's open source, so I'll give it a try.
BTW, I already have a couple of those boards, ordered from futurlec -- slow delivery, but hard to beat the price. Those boards came without a toolchain, but CodeSourcery binaries have worked for me. Some details about getting these boards to talk are in my blog, http://repstrap-cerberus.blogspot.com/2009/05/bringing-up-baby-new-to-me-cortex-m3.html One minor nit is that these boards come with an RS-232 interface (at RS232 levels), which is a slight hassle for working with my laptop. A USB serial converter came in handy for that.
A more integrated env, and more working code is always a nice thing.
I've requested the Xduino download link; fingers crossed.
