In looking closer at things, somehow I think that by cica GCC 5.0, either the GNU compiler will have imploded upon it’s own weight :-o, or it will become an impressively powerful compiler, in place of an impressively portable one.

The feature set being grown, may even give old MSVCs optimization setup a good run for it’s money someday, only the best tools with Visual C++ cost a few thousand dollars and GNUs is given away for free lol.

Me, I would just settle for a generally portable compiler that generates decent code, and complies with the bloody standards… So far I personally like pcc.
