FreeBSD Roman Divacky on behalf of the ClangBSD team writes "ClangBSD is a branch of FreeBSD that aims at integrating clang into FreeBSD, replacing GCC as a system compiler. Recently, we've achieved the state when clang can compile all of FreeBSD world on i386/amd64 platforms (including all the C++ apps we have and itself) and a bootable kernel. Thus we feel that the time has come to ask the FreeBSD community for wider testing on i386/amd64 (you sure can help with other platforms too :))."

>downside is that FreeBSD is left behind until LLVM reaches parity with newest gcc.

No, most people are using GCC4.x from ports if they need it.

And to answer your question why there is no GCC under the GPL v3 in base:

Finally it's about the freedom to do what you want to do with this very operating system.
