LLVM/Clang vs. GCC On The Intel Atom With Linux
Phoronix: LLVM/Clang vs. GCC On The Intel Atom With Linux
For those curious how LLVM/Clang compares against the GCC compiler on low-end x86 hardware, here's some numbers...
Interesting article, none the less. Thanks Michael!
Any proprietary Apple-only LLVM extensions so far?
I doubt it will ever happen. I am no lawyer, does BSD license permit changing of once derivate works into different license? If anything, can this software be "converted" into GPL3?

So basically BSD doesn't protect the free programmer and can't be converted to GPL. All the above doesn't mean that BSD isn't useful. Actually the best thing is LLVM to remain BSD, so that companies will compile their C++ programs and games with LLVM and be Instruction_Set free. Another good thing with BSD is that there are not patents. So if you implement the LLVM technology in the next portable GCC (5 for example), with your own code, then it will be a GPL GCC5_vm, with LLVM binary compatibility.
