The whole goal of GNU was to combat proprietary software. Deliberately over-engineering software just to distinguish itself from another that also has a permissive license (BSD), how is this making the world better?

@akkartik This is precisely why llvm was created, because gcc is deliberately written as a monolith so it can't be co-opted by nonfree interests. People tried for many years to modularize it to simplify the architecture so it could be used in a wider variety of situations; rms said no.
