GNU Compiler Collection

GCC (GNU Compiler Collection) is THE COMPILER of the free world. It supports C, C++, Obj-C, Ada, Fortran and Java to various degrees of standard compliance with it's frontends. It generates code for innumerable number of hardware platforms (from 8 bit micros to superscalar 64 bit behemoths). It may not be the fastest compiler for most language/platform combos, but for most it is the only one and surely, it's fun to use.

Contrary to what some people think compiler has no relation to development environment (the flashy thing with pop-ups and screens full of irrelevant texts).
