The Pathscale compiler, a favorite of those using AMD (Opteron) clusters has been purchased by Cray and will be open sourced.

I have used this compiler for the last 5 years and it is skads faster than anything else on x86_64 architecture. Really great news that it will be open sourced and an HPC (high performance computing) compiler development community built. As usual Linux will be the platform of choice. Cray is to be praised for giving back to the community and keeping this excellent software alive through open source. - montezuma
