Mac OS X "SproutCore, profiled earlier this week, isn't the only big news spill out from the top secret WWDC conference due to Apple's embrace of open source sharing. Another future technology featured by the Mac maker last week was LLVM, the Low Level Virtual Machine compiler infrastructure project. Like SproutCore, LLVM is neither new nor secret, but both have been hiding from attention due to a thick layer of complexity that has obscured their future potential."

This is something I'm very excited about. It can't yet be used for everything, so I went back to gcc, but the underlying technology is very well designed and with a lot of potential.

One of these days I'll have the time to follow the kaleidoscope tutorial and learn how to use llvm to its potential. This will make a lot of things a lot faster and more fun.
