Renesas has some nice small processors also. The dev environment is
free if you can live with a 64k code size limit, and you flash & debug
through a USB dongle you get with an eval board. I've stopped using
PICs after a few dozen products and move to Renesas.
And surface mount at home isn't so tough, you just have to get a
different soldering iron :-) ...
