First impressions

I like the hardware a lot in this kit. The software is potentially good but they have crippled it so you can't even compile the simple demo program included. I am investigating the cost of the simplest form of the Compiler that would allow OSC code to be developed. I really would like our hardware kit to be around $100 with the tools included and this compiler situation prevents that.
