While I'd be the last person to underestimate the difficulty of
switching to a different compiler, Intel claims to have versions of
their compiler that are gcc compatible and Visual Studio compatible.
They also offer a free version for Linux open source projects:
And besides, they cost just under $400 each, which if they made Chandler
50% faster seems like a worthwhile price to pay. I think it definitely
deserves some investigation.
