slightly? Speaking as a C++ programmer, gcc-3 is MUCH better than gcc-2.95.*
Certainly the code I'm writing now won't compile with gcc < 3.0. I imagine it
won't be that long before others are releasing code that *at least* requires
a more uptodate standard library implementation.
Like everyone else who has actually tried it, I have a system compiled with
3.0.4 and have seen no problems.
