GCC Compiler Is Up To 7.3 Million Lines Of Code
Phoronix: GCC Compiler Is Up To 7.3 Million Lines Of Code
Here's some staggering statistics about the development of GCC, the GNU Compiler Collection...
The most interesting question is where these code increases are situated. For example, if the majority of the increase is in the testsuite, that's good news. If they are in the compiler code, probably not so good. If they are in architecture specific code, then that's probably okay.
WTF Michael, do you listen to our complaints or not?
I think I will read linux news somewhere else since you continue to use that big, ugly, non-transparent watermark. Change it or remove it, please.
Sometimes its very interesting going past the last image of the article... and not realizing its not part of the article.
May have to email him directly :/

Both RMS and Kenner were big contributors; RMS did the first few GCC releases entirely on his own. But Phoronix has made a mistake in combining together pre-EGCS and post-EGCS commits.
