Some people prefer investing in GPL licensed software instead

Parent article: Distributions looking at LLVM
While for some people like the BSD distributions the non-GPL license of LLVM is an advantage, for people like me it is the opposite: non-GPL/non-copyleft licensed software is something I would rather not invest my own time on.
Indeed I would be probably using one of the BSD based distributions if they were GPL licensed, but I use GNU/Linux in large part because it is GPL-licensed, and it makes me unhappy that there is no practical GPL licensed alternative to the X Window System.
BTW there is another compiler suite that is BSD licensed, the British
which generates ANDF.
