Many distributions ship with several compilers. In particular on debian I have both 3 and 4 and have been transitioning to 4.

I've been thinking about moving up to GCC 4 on my Gentoo system, but it doesn't seem to be worth the trouble. GCC 4 is currently hard masked on Gentoo, the equivalent of saying "Don't install if you don't want your installation screwed." Besides, I would I have to mess around with KEYWORDS (the Gentoo mechanism for allowing testing packages to be installed). Binaries from 3.4 are compatible with GCC binaries, and I've heard that GCC 4 binaries run about as fast as 3.4 binaries, so there isn't a real reason for me to upgrade at this point. But once GCC 4 goes into stable.... "emerge gcc"
