WLR089U0 or RN2903???

Has Microchip communicated which of these modules is preferred or will have longer-term support/life span?

Hi,
WLR089U0 module is less than 1 year old while RN2903 probably 5 or 6 years...
So, for new projects you should better use WLR089U0.
Additionally WLR089U0 is more integrated as you can put your application software within the module as some space is available for the user. For RN2903, an external microcontroller is necessary...
Regards

For support make sure to check first here : http://microchipdeveloper.com
There are hundreds of PIC, AVR, SAM...which one do YOU use ?

Somewhat related to my original question:
 
I have a first rev of a sensor board using the RN2903A.
Based on the answer above, I'm considering switching to the WLR089U0.
However, it only looks like it is supported with Microchip Studio, not MPLABX.
I'm running Ubuntu on my dev computer, and it looks like Microchip Studio is only available for Windows?
Anyone know otherwise?
 
Or...I did see that MPLABX does support the ATSAMR34, which is the chip used on the WLR089U0, but I don't see how to get the LoraWAN stack?
 
Any help (other than dual boot Windows) would be appreciated.
