OpenBSD "A few weeks ago, the OpenBSD Project announced that the Portable C Compiler had been added to the OpenBSD source tree. There has already been some explanation of why the traditional GNU Compiler Collection is troublesome and why a new compiler is needed, but there are still some details left uncovered. In this interview, Theo de Raadt and Otto Moerbeek of the OpenBSD Project offer more information about PCC and GCC and where they are headed within the project."

"GCC isn't some holy grail that fits everyone's needs."

That really rang true. Of course the people knocking the development efforts are non developers who are completely irrelevant when it comes to these decisions.

The rest either agree with the need or are happy with whatever else. They are the ones that matter, not the posters on osnews who have never directly done anything with the product in question. It is fairly easy to see the ones that have never even required a compiler directly
