    what does this mean for the end user??

    i mean will you be able to compile a kernel with it and have the whole linux stack built with it???

    and what about all the other gcc competing compilers (llvm)

    It's fully GNU C compatible, so you'll simply replace GCC with this, compile everything and everything.

    Is this MIT licensed? I thought somneone mentioned it? Then this will replace all open source compilers. Even on the Mac.

    Pity Michael had to steel their thunder but I am looking forward to rebuilding my Gentoo system with this

    Yeah, I'll probably do that as well at some point I hope it can compile wine. Anything but the most basic of optimisation with gcc causes crashes with wine at the moment. Would love to squeeze a few more FPS out of it

    I suppose that it has something to do with PathScale's 'CUDA-killer'?

    Hope distributions will provide kernels compiled with it, maybe different kernels for specific processors (Phenom, Turion, i7 etc.). Or maybe the full distribution compiled with performance optimisations.

    Wasn't pathscale already involved in Open64, and path64?
    Either way, I have my doubts about anything truly far-reaching being announced, but if it's something nice and compiler related, then any article is going to have to be pretty well thought out (including which benchmarks are run, and what they're compared to), or else everybody is likely to rip it to shreds.
