While I agree with your assessment, I don't think we should drop support for
MSB430 platforms. First, we have plenty of them in Berlin and Hamburg and I
will happily lend them to anyone asking for it. Second, they are (or at least
were) used in other academic institutes in WSN area. Finally, they are very
similar to widely used platforms such as TelosB or WSN430 and the additional
maintenance effort is really small. However, we definitely should try harder
to get a better support for MSP430 platforms in general.
