My main development environment is MSVC on Windows as it's the lowest
common denominator usually. Then it's GCC on Linux. Finally, only
occasionally, I give it a whirl on clang on FreeBSD.
Outcome may cause GCC to sometimes ICE in its unit tests, but really I
assure you that GCC is a fine compiler to write Outcome based code with.
You very rarely encounter problems in normal coding, and GCC has a
Concepts implementation which Outcome uses and makes for much more
useful compiler error messages, plus I suspect it's a bit faster to
compile as Concepts are easier than SFINAE to evaluate.
