FreeBSD "For the past several years we've been working towards migrating from GCC to Clang/LLVM as our default compiler. We intend to ship FreeBSD 10.0 with Clang as the default compiler on i386 and amd64 platforms. To this end, we will make WITH_CLANG_IS_CC the default on i386 and amd64 platforms on November 4th."

"Irrational? Hardly. My argument against C++ is/was always about complexity.


There exists other languages that promote complexity much more than C++. eg, Java and C, IRONICALLY. But what makes your arguments irrational are your supporting arguments. It's not irrational to argue against complexity, but it is irrational to bring up irrelevant and downright unsafe practices as proof of a language's unnecessary complexity.
"

I don't know - Java does encourage over-design, but C++ encourages nigh-unreadable template fun and magical mystery action-at-a-distance.

Of course, C++ in the right hands is fine, and it does also depend on what you're coding against (Qt code tends to look good to me), and dash of C++ can remove a lot of pain from a C project.
