I had a similar choice to make, being a long time ELDK user and starting a
new project with a different Freescale device, in my case the ARM11 based
i.MX31 (a very cool device, btw). 

I agree with your comments on the quality of ELDK. I went with Freescale
ltib, and so far I am quite impressed. It takes a fairly similar approach to
ELDK, also using RPM and shipping with pre-compiled tools, libraries and

I wonder if there isn't an opportunity to converge the two :-) Just kidding.
