    I have read some threads on internet on winavr vs avrstudio.

    I read here:

    Then why people prefer Winavr over compiler of AS, when both are same except version?

    What is binutils?

    binutils is short for "binary utilities" and is a collection of programs that are helpful in developing software. They include things like grep, awk, sed, and objdump.

    They might prefer winavr because it lacks the bloated feeling of AS6.
