What's the LLVM / clang fuss about anyway?
I keep hearing about LLVM for years already, it's presented by its' supporters (of which many have never actually even tried it out, I bet!) as "The Solution To All (alleged) GCC Problems", but it somehow fails to replace the GCC as an omnipresent compilation system.
Until there is not a single Linux distribuition out there compiled with LLVM / clang, and there still is none, it will just not cut it.
Besides, as the Phoronix article shows, it's also not on-par performance-wise.
I'd love to move to a compiler with better / more understandable errors and warnings, especially for C++, and which compiles faster - but until the code does not execute at the same speed (and it seems it mostly lags behind GCC), and until it is not integrated into the system adequately (read: LLVM-based distribution), I do not see the point in switching.
