RE: GCC > LLVM
I don't have an emotional attachment to any compiler.
I don't have such attachment either, it's just that I have some sympathy towards GCC because...
-It is the sole C/C++ compiler producing high-performance code which I know of that's not owned by a megalomaniac mega-corporation or a processor manufacturer.
-It has some very useful extensions.
-It works everywhere and for just about every target.
-It's heavily covered by documentation on the internet.
-It's licensed under GPL, which I personally like better than BSD licensing.
Now, if they could only copy LLVM's nice warnings...
