Yesterday I asked this Qn:
But some fellow members felt that, it belongs to below category:
Why we're not customer support for [your favorite company]
However I am unable to understand that how is it a customer support request? Or how can it be an opinion based Qn?
On the contrary, I assumed that it will give way to many interesting analysis such as,
- If an organization like Android has decided to follow the footsteps of Apple, by favouring Clang, then there has to be legitimate reasons for it.
- Is there something really wrong with GCC as such?
- Android, Clang & GCC all are free & possibly open source softwares. How do they make choices?
The sense of my Qn is well crafted by a fellow member @JonathanEunice in below comment:
Why a major software project would make such a historic shift of toolsets is a legitimate and pertinent question for a software engineering Q&A site. Shifts of this magnitude are rarely driven merely by fickle preference or opinions. There are undoubtedly technical and ecosystem justifications for the shift that would benefit many to understand.
Why this Qn has generated so much heat that it has been downvoted, closed & now being attempted for deletion?
