Why was my thread "AVR vs. PIC" removed? I have created the thread in 
Offtopic! I thought that we could write about anything in the offtopic 
forum including the topic AVR vs. PIC!

You can write about almost anything. One of the things you can't write 
is a post with the only intention of starting a senseless flamewar.

I am very disappointed :). The flamewar threads are the most 
interesting/funniest threads... And I created the topic deliberately in 
"Offtopic" not in "Microcontrollers" :(

Maybe the admin should write what is allowed in the Offtopic and what 
isn't.

Lets just discuss here what is better.

I think AVR is better, PIC is lame. AVR got a free GCC compiler, PIC got 
memory banks and weird assembler code. AVR instruction set is mostly 
single cycle (MHz = MIPS), PIC got multiple cycles per instructions (i 
think at least 4 cycles).

there are some with a short ..., and some with a long ...!

Thats it,

it does only matter, that you are using the most suitable tool to reach 
our solution! Thats my opinion :)
