I was wondering how many PIC users are on LMR and what languages are being used. I am currently a fan of the dsPIC33's and use C and assembly for programming.
If you cut out all the pre-written libraries, C has about 32 commands or something. I don't understand why anyone uses it. RISC assembler on a PIC has only 32 commands or something similar.
The answer is "lots and lots".
I'd say a good chunk of the PIC users are using PICAXE (ie BASIC), but I favour RISC on the 16x series.
To my surprise I have started enjoying using the more low (or is it high, can never remember) - level features of Picaxe; I see myself writing and reading to EEPROM, masking bits in bytes, setting flags and that kind of stuff.
So the answer may be; One Picaxe user here, considering listening to good old BOA and take up some low/high(whatever)-level coding..
