CodeMonkey,

"I was blown away by it myself and almost didn't beleive it. I've seen comparable results with other C++ code bases."

If this is true, I'll need to take a look into it.

I downloaded the trial, but it wouldn't run on this 32bit system (silly me).

Unfortunately I cannot afford the price "Starting at $1795", which is a yearly price?

Like everyone else, I didn't find any open source code. Technically they might not distribute the source code to non-customers.

Does anyone know what they mean by "open source"? The following statement gives me the impression they're not going to use GPL3 for the debugger or the compiler.

"In addition to the compiler, this release also includes PathDB, a modern debugger. PathDB has been released under a permissive license, in response to requests from the open source community for a modern debugger that is not encumbered by the GPLv3."

I hate speculating, does anyone know the details?
