IMHO since it is a part of LLVM project, there's nothing that makes it platform specific. Clang supports various ObjC runtimes, so I presume Swift will follow.

I am after my 1st read. So far what makes me curious is whether there will be a way to keep class instances on stack. From what I understood all classes are pointers where value types are not.
Not sure whether containers are pointers or values though. I wish to be there at WWDC ;)
Swift seems to carry C++11 power without its clutter, however I am not sure if it is as much expressive as C++11.
