If I understood correctly in the license thread, one only needs to purchase a license for doing atmegas, not the esp, correct?

I'm new here too but so far it seems to work for me without a "generic target license." Perhaps it is considered "native mode" and thus no license needed?

In general, the generic target license is required for target devices that are not purchased from ZBasic/Elba. The ESP8266 is an exception to that policy.

On the other hand, a generic target device such as the Atmel ATmega168 does require a generic target license (and it is a native mode target). The descriptor "native mode" is used for targets for which native code is generated by the ZBasic compiler. The original ZX devices such as the ZX-24p host an interpreter and they execute a type of "p-code" rather than native code.
