To be honest, the availability of GCC is far more important to some
proprietary *NIX vendors than to Microsoft. You can get away with no
C compiler on Windows, but on *NIX systems, it's *much* harder.
So I think this is a non-issue. The ubiquitous availability of GCC is
more important for the process of Free Software Enlightenment than the
freedom of GCC itself.
