The Megavore is an Atmel AVR xMEGA 128A1 development board, similar to Arduino (but not exactly pinout compatible).
If you want to start with a XMega family, try the Megavore board. It features:
* An Atmel AVR xMEGA 128A1, running at up to 32MHz
* A USB to serial adapter, using the venerable FTDI FT232R chip
* All of the pins not in use for crystals and power available on 0.1 inch headers
* All of the normal support parts, including a 3.3V 1 amp linear regulator, power connectors, USB-B connector, etc
