FreeBSD "I've made clang the default on x86 systems. There will probably be a few bumps as we work out the last kinks including a ABI issue for i386 system libraries, but the transition is expected to be fairly smooth for most users."

I'm not a compiler expert, I'm only a GCC and FreeBSD user, so from a practical point of view... why do you consider Clang so awesome?

To me It always smelled like a political decision and not a technical one... Apple wanted a BSD-licensed compiler and not a GPL one so they spent zillons of dollars creating a new one and alienating the open source community.

But maybe I'm wrong and there are technical reasons to have Clang and dismiss good old GCC...
