I have to disagree. While we should probably try more platforms for
objectivity sake, MSVC++ 6 is one of the most widely used compilers out
there (basically we, and many others have to use it at work). So
performance comparison on MSVC++ build is VERY relevant for me. After
all, I need to keep in mind performance in a real life environment, as
well as academic 'best case' environment.
P.S. For the record, MSVC++ was forced on me and I have to use it for
the $$$ sake. I, too, would have preferred one of the better compilers
if I had a choice.
