Intel Cilk Plus Support Continues For GCC
Phoronix: Intel Cilk Plus Support Continues For GCC
As some more positive news for the GCC compiler after writing how NVIDIA and Mentor Graphics could harm the open-source compiler, Intel engineers are continuing to work on improving the Cilk Plus implementation...
It's really hard to choose between GCC and Clang with latest Intel OpenMP runtime patches for Clang
No, not really. If someone cares about freedom he chooses GPL projects. Furthermore, GCC proven to be faster than Clang and it's much more mature. There's a need by the FLOSS community to have GPL GCC and having Clang is nothing, but nice option.

I'm only familiar with OpenMP, and so far I don't see any advantage in Cilk over it. Still I'd like to read a thorough comparison.
I personally don't care about which license the compiler I'm going to use, is using. I would go with whatever is provided as default compiler on target platform since both GCC and Clang are pretty close regards to the (single threaded) generated code speed.
