This is crazy talk. Apple's decision to go with LLVM is simply a practical and pragmatic one. It is a matter of choosing the right tool for the right job.

They simply needed a better compiler infrastructure to make Xcode and other tools smarter. You can see some good results of that in Xcode4.

They saw a great opportunity in an open source project (LLVM) and jumped on it.

No, I can't. It's proprietary and probably won't ever be ported to my platforms. This kind of crap is why I don't contribute to BSDL projects unless I'm being well paid.
