"Red Hat has many different constituencies, ranging from enterprise customers
to ISVs to kernel developers to systems vendors. It would have been great if
GCC 3.0 had been a released compiler and had all the quality, performance,
functionality, and features that our various constituents required. Alas, GCC
3.0 is very much a work in progress, and while we've contributed significantly
to that work (many Red Hat engineers are full-time GCC developers), GCC 3.0 is
still quite a ways off." From FreeOS.com.
