Well, Rask is an embedded developer (AFAICT), so he has a use for it. Besides, some talk was about resurrecting the "dead" (??) ELKS project. They use BCC (aka, Dev86), last I heard, which isn't as good as GCC.

Whatever. Anything like this is of interest to me (assuming it gets to a workable state). "Build it and they will come." (Field of Dreams) :-D
