Building the firmware

29 January 2012 - 02:55 AM

I finally had some time to get serious about playing with my netduino plus, and was SOOOOOOOOOOO bummed to find out that you have to have a non-free and astronomically expensive compiler to build the firmware in any reasonable fashion. I was wondering why anyone was still buying arduinos, cuz this thing is so much more powerful. Now I know why. I can make my arduino look like any USB device I want. What a major bummer. The development tools are so much better, as is the live debugging. But what a limitation, I am seriously seriously bummed. Please someone tell me there is a way to do this without a $3000 compiler or leaving out half the firmware in the build. Bill M.
