Whats the difference between a Launchpad and a Development Kit? Many launchpads like the TI's Stellaris/Hercules launchpads even support In circuit debugging capabilities via USB. This eliminates the need of purchasing a JTAG debugger.

"LaunchPad" is the name given to TI's development kits that support expansion via "BoosterPacks". So in short, practically nothing.
