PING sensor question

Oh hello there! I'm pretty new with robotics and all of that exciting stuff. I'd been wanting a microcontroller for a few years, and when mbed gave out free mbeds, (yay) I got one and messed around with it a bit.

Have anyone had any experience with mbed?

My brother pointed this ARM processor out for me and it looks promising. I like the idea of a microprocessor fitting in a 40pin socket. And after downloading the +1Gb IDE for the MSP430 LaunchPad I find the compiler in the cloud interesting.
If this is new to you, have a look at; http://mbed.org/
Also have a look at the handbooks as it’s has many of functions we normally use; http://mbed.org/handbook/Homepage
Or maybe even enter the challenge?
