    Wait, I thought LLVM was junk

    I'm confused. Every time there's an LLVM posting, there's a slew of commenters wondering why LLVM even exists. They state that GCC is far superior and LLVM is a waste of effort. It can't possibly be true that competition between two open-source projects is actually useful for something.
