I needed to install SimpleIDE Linux, I notice that has not been updated, at all. SimpleIDE Raspberry Pi, that looks like it has disappeared, or it is very difficult to find. SimpleIDE Windows, same problem.
Since I like to plan ahead, should I plan to quit using SimpleIDE, for all distributions? Or the better question, what does Parallax plan on supporting? Not everybody wants to get funneled into using BlocklyProp. These are just my concerns for using the Propeller 1.
Since it looks like the Propeller 2 is no longer vaporware, and it might be available for the general masses, within the next six months, what will I use to program that chip? OK, Spin 2, will that be as powerful and convenient to use as SimpleIDE C/C++? I know, the usual answer is, the source code is available, DIY; in my opinion, not a very good marketing response. At a loss, I hope I get some answers.
