Yeah, it is exactly the same as Arduino IDE, weird. I remember playing with some MSP430 boards in the university and it was a pain in every sense, even in cost. I ordered a couple of Launchpad to test, for 4.3 usd including shipping!

Why is it be weird?  It is a direct fork from the Ardunio Github project.  It would be weird if it WASN'T exactly like the Arduino IDE.

I'm just glad someone made the effort since TI didn't seem interested in cross platform support.

The more you target commercial users, the less you care about cross-platform support.

Weird because TI for me was always ultra commercially oriented rather than open, so weird = funny to see Energia IDE :D
BTW, TI software uses Eclipse (or netbeans) so it is certainly cross platform.

After 4 days, this saturday a fedex box arrived, with the 2 Launchpads I ordered. Incredible price, the 2 boxes include usb cable, 2 microcontrollers, some pin headers, optional oscilator & quick guide+stickers. For sure TI is trying to hit the electronic market offering this board at this price, just the shipping here probably costs 10 times the price of each Launchpad box. Will do some tests this week to see how it behaves in consumption vs my arduinos
