-Welcome to LLVM!
+Low Level Virtual Machine (LLVM)
+================================
 
-This file provides the location of all important LLVM documentation.  In
-particular, you should read the license information and the installation
-directions before you begin using LLVM.
+This directory and its subdirectories contain source code for the Low Level 
+Virtual Machine, a toolkit for the construction of highly optimized compilers,
+optimizers, and runtime environments. 
 
-After that, there are several technical references that will help you use LLVM.

-Finally, you can find information on how to communicate with the LLVM
-developers and LLVM community.  This is of primary interest if you wish to
-submit a bug, supply a patch, or just keep current with what's going on with
