FreeBSD Roman Divacky on behalf of the ClangBSD team writes "ClangBSD is a branch of FreeBSD that aims at integrating clang into FreeBSD, replacing GCC as a system compiler. Recently, we've achieved the state when clang can compile all of FreeBSD world on i386/amd64 platforms (including all the C++ apps we have and itself) and a bootable kernel. Thus we feel that the time has come to ask the FreeBSD community for wider testing on i386/amd64 (you sure can help with other platforms too :))."

Isn't OpenSolaris built with Sun's C compiler anyway?

Yes it is, and it has its own userland (besides the GNU userland, which is optional actually). But I assume facts were not a priority for the previous poster.

"A requirement for OpenSolaris is the ability to build a working set of bits using either recent Sun Studio tools or the GNU compiler collection."
