@Bill:  The Stellaris driver lib is simpler and easier to use to get fast results. It has excellent documentation. It was the crown jewel they got from Luminary.

Their own Code Composer Studio that works at full capcity on their own Eval Boards ir through an XDS 100 is a great strategy that allows you to test the entire range of capabilities of an MCU. The same IDE works across their entire line from MSP430 to the Full Arm Sitarra/OMAP and DSP as well as the Cortex line. It makes it easy to work with and integrate the various libraries into the IDE environment.

Easiest way to see the difference is to buy a Stellaris LaunchPad -- downlaoad the CCS 5 IDE, install Stellarisware and simply try it out.

The differences in sophistication should be obvious.

The ST Library vs Stellarisware is a Model T vs a well appointed, well maintained Ferrari.

Now if only TI could deliver and MCU with Ethernet that is not NRND...
