NXP took care of most of the issues long time  ago. Remaining bugs are well 
documented, better than parts from other  companies without documented bug list.
Get the /01 versions of the chips. Available for around $2 in volume. Easily 
available on Digikey, and dev boards are $30.95 on Sparkfun.  Free GNU tools 
available, including several free OS's. Love the fact that  executables run on 
different parts, one can choose based on memory  requirements.
Another one is NEC, they make a host of Microcontrollers that are  extremely 
popular in Detroit. Lot's of support, high-reliability with wide temp  ranges 
etc. They have units with direct LCD drive, motor control circuitry,  etc.
