For hobby & prototyping, Flash is "Wunnerful", even for hard-core geeks
with 3 EPRom erasers <G>  /JW parts tend to be rather pricey, compared
to Flash, as we all know.  For production, OTP is far cheaper, unless
you expect to regularly revise your code.  Wish the /JW parts were
cheaper, or there was a flash part that came in OTP versions also <G>
Learning curve can far exceed the parts costs, too, definitely - need to
consider all those factors & more (just to confuse yourself) before
making the best choice you can <G>

Using an Atmel on one project just for speed & for the flash - Wouldn't
want to pay $8 instead of $2.50 for some projects, if they ever come to
be, that's about 3/2 the profit margin per item!
