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."

Sure, but all things equal - why would you switch if clang misses OpenMP and can't compile some C++ apps (inkscape for example fails, and some areas need non-trivial re-working to make it compatible).

Still, hopefully being default in BSD gives some incentive for clang to become as complete as GCC.


As I understand it, BSD is written in C, so other applications that can't be compiled with Clang can use GCC.
