Is the Intel Compiler Free? (or OSS, but Free is the main thing). I think as long as there is a way for people to get a copy of the compiler to run tests and stuff against without spending $$$ there is very little reason not to add another compiler class.

If it costs money always, then IDK what the policy for that is, I personally still wouldn’t have a problem as long as there was a commitment from intel to support it, but it’s not my decision either.
