Phoronix: Developers Still Pursue Linux Kernel With LLVM/Clang
Open-source developers are still pursuing the feat of building the mainline Linux kernel with the LLVM/Clang compiler rather than GCC...
von Drashek, is that you?
OS X and BSD have been dumped the crap GPL GCC compiler tools for the modern BSD based Clang/LLVM and have their complete systems built off it for a long time already.
Is the Linux codebase that bad or are the Linux developers just incompetent?
I dunno... GDB, Atlas tuned algebra , PPL graphite, compile GCC GlibC Binutils & GNU toolchain 1000x w/ -march=native -Os and my binaries are FAR superior to LLVM/CLANG. My Wine dumps are -=[C]razy=-
Guess I'm not cool like iPhone, but I know what Bell labs was setting up 40+ years ago
