FreeBSD "I've made clang the default on x86 systems. There will probably be a few bumps as we work out the last kinks including a ABI issue for i386 system libraries, but the transition is expected to be fairly smooth for most users."

While nifty, looks like a different tool - openmp is a standard that works across gcc/intel/ibm/oricle/msvc... compilers.

And can be integrated with existing c/c++/fortran codebases.

I know it's a different tool, but it's worth investigating how CERN does its HPC work with clang/cling, if indeed they do use clang/cling for HPC.

I don't know much in that area and it would be interesting to hear from people who do.
