Has anyone tried out the MSP430 Launch Pad yet?

http://www.ti.com/tool/msp-exp430g2

I ordered one a few weeks ago (couldn't pass up the price) but haven't tried it out yet.  I did notice the software you needed to install in order to program it seemed very large and bloated.

I've grown accustom to Arduino's lightweight software and AVR-GCC.  At least you can use those on Linux!

it has great potential for cheap projects.

I have and I like to use TI's CCS an eclipse base IDE.. there is a problem, though. long story just please read this: IOT RoadTest

BTW It is a very capable board, They have others in the same price point (under 20 bucks) and have lots more IO ie TM4C129x board, with built-in 10/100 RJ45 interface.
