cant say if they are better or worse than the pic's, but as for the 18f 
series, there is upcomming support in sdcc:

so far i have been able to compile some test stuff of my own, and it works 
nicely. since im going to use the 18f4550 (with full speed usb interface), i 
can say that this particular chip is supported in sdcc. from there, it 
shouldnt be hard to create code for the other 18f's as well.
