I think that it's very useful for university students!!!!!!

Probably there will be people asking: "why when I try to install KDE
in my muLinux, it doesn't work?", but it's not a good reason to remove
the X disk!

What does you mean?
If mantaining means answering to all the guys asking questions about
C, that's OK, I can do it...
If it means to make a better GCC add-on nope: I've no time to do it...
If the problem it's only answering e-mail of beginners I'll do it...
But you have to put the note "For educational purpose only - not good
to compile real-world programs" on the Web page, near the GCC link...
I'd like to help you, and I think that the GCC disk is really a good
idea, but you have to tell me exactly what you mean...



p.s. KDE on muLinux is not a bad idea ;)
