Atmel made this press release yesterday:

http://atmel.com/dyn/corporate/v...

It was actually the daily newsletter I get from embedded.com that told me about this - in that same email they posted a link to a Jack Ganssle article about the Atmel/Microchip thing:

Talking of the PIC acrchitecture and Venture Capitalists(VCs) he says:

Some of us engineer-types chortled: only dumb old VCs would buy that brain-dead and clearly obsolete design.

:lol:

He said a lot more than that, such as Microchip providing what customers wanted and excellent tools and support.

Yeah but this is an AVR support forum so the order of the day is PIC bashing however good they may be.

(after a short familiarity with them I can't say I've actually found anything THAT impressive though I do like that "logic analyser" view you can get in the MPLAB simulator)
