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."

For me generics in Java suck, because of type erasure they are only half way there when compared to what other languages offer as generics. But yeah, it is still way better than not having them.

As for the things taking time to be implemented in Java vs Python, it is always like that when a language is subject to some form of standardization process, look at how slow FORTRAN, Ada, C++, C, OpenGL standards evolved, just to name a few examples.

And compare their evolution with languages and API not subject to standardization processes.
