    Logged on to all sorts of good news today. This should go a very long way to providing the infrastructure the ARM world needs.

      No mention the license used was the BSD license?

      Proving again why BSD > GPL; never would have been able to do this with a GPL style license.

        They said something like 25 years.

          Dear Apple,

          Thanks for the financial backing, development and huge recent dump of ARM based code. We'll default to your direction.

          Sincerely,

          ARM

            Do you ever wonder if the 64 bit architecture was Apples idea? You think about it they got a huge lead on the rest of the industry, makes you wonder how.

              Exactly. Also the LLVM internal design is better thanks to BSD. Competent paid developers were allowed to participate. With GPL the problem is that you can't easily hire anyone to do the job. Mostly just amateurs.

                Oh yeah, and the license must also be the reason why BSD operating systems are far more successful and technically superior and more popular than Linux and have more developers contributing than on Linux...

                Seriously, stop trolling. 2/10 for making me reply

                  BSD is better license than GPL for sure for closed source....

                  And next time you can click here to buy your favorite LLVM/CLANG version for ARM the article writes about - the source for it probably will not be given out...

                  Are you writing about BSD vs. GPL in the context of open source licenses? If so it sounds funny least to say,
