Another cheap uP for beginners

STM are eager to push their offering and are doing so by going for the price point. This Kit Can apparently be got for <$10 and includes the programmer as well as a demo board with prototype area. Its an absolute bargain and definately worth taking a look at. Even if you are already happy with a platform I recommend trying others out if only for the learning experience. "The STM8S-Discovery is a quick-start evaluation board based on the STM8S105C6T6. It includes the embedded debugger ST-LINK and one touch-sensing button which help you to discover the STM8 features."
