Basically, it's not the PIC chips are harder to use than Arduinos. There are eight-bit PIC chips that are quite comparable to the small Arduino units. Unfortunately, that doesn't look like it's what you'll be using. These 32-bit chips look a bit like my old Motorolla. Lots of peripherals, lots of instructions.
