What I'm really surprised about is how quickly they got C++ support in it given that many compilers even to this day their compilers fail to conform to many of the C++ standards that have existed for many years. Hopefully more operating systems will jump on board and expand the support further; maybe we'll see LLVM/Clang become the official compiler for *BSD's and their ports some time in the future, with many of the GNU/GCC'isms finally removed from open source code and replaced with open standards code that allow it to be compiled with any compiler.
