Linux Clang can build a kernel now. "The kernel can successfully boot to runlevel 5 (aka X + networking) on the Macbook, both on bare metal and in Qemu. The kernel can successfully boot to runlevel 3 on a secondary test machine, a microATX desktop box (Intel Atom). I haven't tried to start X on this box yet. The kernel can self-host; I am currently running a 'fourth generation' self-hosted Linux kernel built by a 'fourth generation' Clang."

But Linux is more popular -- I do neither write nor mean better -- than *BSD or Darwin.

On the desktop, this is debatable. On the server, I can't tell since I don't know the market, but I've seen both debian and freebsd on university servers in my short student life.
