GCC: GNU Compiler Collection
http://gcc.gnu.org/wiki/History
Conveniently left out from the history is a mention that Stallman does not remember which proprietary compiler he used to build and bootstrap the original GCC (which is responsible for all subsequent GCCs since).
This has prompted Bradley Kuhn to call for an open hardware project with the sole purpose of bootstrapping a 100% “clean” compiler. Kuhn has taken the position that there could indeed be a Thompson Bug and the only way to be sure there isn’t and to have a 100% trusted Free Software platform is to start from scratch.
Stallman dismissed Kuhn’s position as radical (!) and unnecessary… :D
