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."

RE[3]: C++

C is here to stay, it's the lowest common denominator as far as high level languages go, supported by pretty much every platform, and useable from just about any other language.

It is only the lowest common denominator on the operating systems that happen to have C as their API.

In Symbian you need a C++ compiler, even C code gets compiled by C++ compiler.

Starting with Windows 8, WinRT comes into the picture as the future direction of the operating system API.

Eventually C++ will be the lowest level API you can get on Windows.
