FreeBSD "For the past several years we've been working towards migrating from GCC to Clang/LLVM as our default compiler. We intend to ship FreeBSD 10.0 with Clang as the default compiler on i386 and amd64 platforms. To this end, we will make WITH_CLANG_IS_CC the default on i386 and amd64 platforms on November 4th."

Well... I hope the performance of Clang compiled FreeBSD 10 will be on par with gcc compiled FreeBSD 9.

This kind of decisions remind me a lot to the "eat your own dog food" attitude so common in big IT companies... now Open Source world is suffering the same affection.

I think you're mixing up your terms.

NIH (Not Invented Here) is an affliction.

Eating your own dogfood is a praise-worthy quality that means that you're less likely to ship garbage because the people most able to fix problems that annoy them are full-blown users.
