    Well, they are wasting their efforts in switching to LLVM/Clang in the first place. GCC is a great, mature and very well supported piece of software, there is, as of now, virtually no reason to switch. (Unless you don't like the license, which is just stupid.)
    They don't like gpl3 - that's why FreeBSD still uses gpl2 gcc and I think the main reason they are working on clang/llvm. FreeBSD likes the BSD licence - what's wrong with not using a restrictive licence like GPL3? Many commercial contributors find BSD much more attractive than Linux for this reason.


    Anyway I think users are able to install whatever they like from Ports, and GPL3 GCC is available in there if you want to use it.

    check http://clang.llvm.org/comparison.html
    as to the license why dosent linux use the icc its faster and produces better binaries. Its the same for bsd and gcc

    Why can't FreeBSD implement an UVC kernel driver like all the others BSDs?
