I would like to hear some answers also. Google's top hit is:
That's some years out of date and can be summarised as: advantage is a
bsd licence versus an lgpl licence. Also some speedup due to dropping
support for c++ exceptions. Also in 2008 there was no TLS in uclibc
(seems quite mature at least in current uclibc git)
This does raise a good point - can "we" really work on getting uclibc
next release out and stabilised as quickly as possible? It's a massive
improvement over prior releases and even the unreleased git should
become everyone's version of choice right now (for a certain definition
of everyone). On x86 a very large proportion of software now compiles
without obvious problems
I'm using a trivial bump of the in tree ebuild to grab the current git
uclibc and very pleased with it
