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

I read here:
WinAVR: avr-gcc = 4.3.3, AVR-LibC = 1.6.7, binutils = 2.19
As6 Toolchain: avr-gcc= 4.6.2, AVR-LibC = 1.8.0, binutils = 2.22

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.
