> My congratulations to Chris as well!  For those who don't follow the ACM world much, SIGPLAN is the primary research organization for PL and Compilers, and I expect this award to become one of the most prestigious awards in the field.  It's quite a coup for Chris and for LLVM to have won it, and moreover to win it in the first year of the award.  And it's remarkable that it has happened less than 7 years after the first LLVM release in October 2003.

Thanks Vikram!  As all of you know, LLVM isn't a one man show though :).   I see this as an award given to a very vibrant and exciting community, recognizing the many contributions of *many* different people here.
