Yeah, I think it's pretty weak to market this as an ArduinoTM Mega, including the almost-trademark blue soldermask, when it's not Arduino-software compatible.  It's not entirely clear if the Arduino guys in Italy have granted Seeed the right to use that trademark for the hardware, but it doesn't sound like it.

The Arduino Mega is supported by the Arduino IDE (with the new version 15 available today).  The ArduinoMega uses a ATmega1280, not a mega128.

Seeed is not the developer of it, there are merely one of the distributors; and one of the first to put it up on their store.  nkcelectronics.com also is selling it.

33Warlord, I read further back in the thread and found the earlier comments.  I stand corrected.  But it still sounds like the release was a bit botched by mis-coordination.
