    i'm not sure about kernel, but gcc11 is "the only c++20 compiler on earth", and it's already 2021

    While there are always exceptions, much of Linux userland can compile with llvm/clang. The Openmandriva distro is built with llvm/clang for example. And while I think things are still in various stages of WIP, at least some other distributions are trying to make sure that their packaging/tooling is compiler agnostic, as there are some applications today which essentially require llvm/clang due to upstream requirements regardless of the distros compiler preference. In the end, having compiler alternatives is a good thing, as it encourages each group to produce a better result, and let the best compiler win.

    Holy crap GCC is a shitshow.

    And the kernel.

    Yes, and some vendors compile their production linux kernels with llvm/clang. There were actually dual paths involved to get to this step (over many years), with some kernel changes and some llvm/clang changes involved along the way. While gcc is still the default default, at this point breakage of the build for either compiler would be considered a regression worthy of fixes.

    GCC 11.5 should be good enough.

    Phoronix: GCC 11 Is On The Final Stage Of Development With 60+ High Priority Regressions

    GCC 11 entered its final stage of development today as it works towards releasing around the end of Q1 / early Q2 if their past cadence holds up. Before GCC 11.1 can debut as the first stable version, there are some 60+ "P1" high priority regressions that need to be resolved or otherwise demoted to lesser priority regressions...
