And he managed to plug Jini and Java quite a bit as well, I see. I wish there was a transcript or audio file of the event.

In what ways does GCC "suck"? I'm using Visual C++ 6 at work and it has no support for some things that EGCS (now gcc) does, such as the try-function-block, and the relaxation of virtual function return types. There may be more, but I'm not sure.
