I use egcs with linux, and actually thought you were talking about that.
I have not had that many problems with egcs (of course that would
depend on the version!). The problems I have had were mostly related to
problems with exception-handling and use of templates. Of course in the
more recent versions of egcs most of these problems have been adressed,
but I just thought that I would object to calling gcc/egcs a "performant"
compiler when it's not.
