Start64!A few days ago I posted some LLVM Clang 3.7 vs. GCC compiler benchmarks on Linux in time for the release of LLVM 3.7. While LLVM/Clang 3.7 brings full support for OpenMP 3.1, OMP tests were omitted from the original article due to running into some issues. In this article are some reference tests for Clang OpenMP performance with the latest mainline SVN code compared to GCC.

Start64!Canonical provides 32- and 64-bit images for Ubuntu and it's been like this for a long time, since the first edition that came out in 2004. Now, an Ubuntu contributor is looking to change this by proposing that Canonical drop 32-bit support after the release of 16.04 LTS.
