    @Lahsen2016 well you do need their gcc compiler ...

    @Lahsen2016 Um, no. The Linux kernel can only be compiled by gcc today. LLVM/Clang seems to be getting close, but it's not there yet.

    One day everything will run on a free and open source OS and spyware will not be included in operating systems.
    One day we will not have security flaws in CPUs or routers.
    One day everything connected to the internet will be secure.

    Yeah, one day.

    @Lahsen2016 The Linux kernel is ~20 millions lines of code, and parts of it aren't actually C standards compliant. These parts are more like some GNU C variant.

    The kernel has a reliance on gcc for these parts, and it actually *needs* gcc specific extensions to compile. Until the day comes where
    1) all those gcc extensions are supported in another compiler, or
    2) someone replaces ALL the code that required those gcc extensions in the first place, or
    3) some combination of 1 and 2,
    we won't see another compiler that can compile all of the kernel.

    Like @peonicles mentioned, LLVM/Clang is chugging along, but my guess is they're at least another year out.
