| Well that surely makes very little sense.

Obviously, you know next to nothing about how things are in the French
education system, and how universities and engineer schools get
financial support.  Please, go and check out to get some sense of

Certainly, it is not.  But that doesn't imply that universities and

I'm talking of  "École Centrale de Lyon"m

I'm a former student of the "École Normale Supérieure de Cachan",
(I've been using computers there since 1995 and I do know what
machines I'm using there).  The situation is not better in
universities that don't have enough financial support.

The view that GCC is slow and should remain slow is ridiculous.
