Things have come a long way since I first started using mspgcc about
11 years ago.  I'm glad TI stopped dragging their feet and acting
generally obstructive and got behind gcc.  I'm no longer an active
user of the '430, but I'd like to extend my personal thanks to
everybody who worked on mspgcc over the years (especially in the old
days) -- and thanks/congratulations to whoever at TI finally slapped
some sense into management at TI and got them to support gcc.  Back in
the day it must have been embarassing to many at TI to see how highly
everbody regarded Atmel due to thier commitment to gcc and
open-source.  [Expecially considering how annoying and hard to support
the AVR architecture was compared to the '430.]
