That's not the complaint. The complaint is that the process at PID 1 should be simple. You people running around screaming about a bunch of different processes are only compounding the proof that you do not understand Unix. It's not a problem to have many processes.

We all stopped using UNIX long ago, it's GNU/Linux now and it's only somewhat inspired by UNIX. What the UNIX people did 30 years ago is interesting from a historical perspective, but is not in any way the only right way to do things. I say did because that's now even how modern unices work. Solaris has for example been running on SMF since 2005 and they are doing just fine.

They stopped using gcc for various reasons, the project was stagnant, ridden by core developers that could not agree on a road map, it forked a few times I believe and it was always not only buggy but years behind modern C++ standards. Not to mention gcc is slow and the code it produces was not really fast or small in the recent years.
No idea how it is faring right now.

You should really take a look at gcc 4.9 because your viewpoint is seriously out of date.

I'd rather be led to hell than managed to heavan.
