I ask you that simply because I don't want that many aspects of the 
system which are based on the gcc default version could be broken, when 
I go to install the newest version of the compiler.
So can you confirm that there is full compatibility with the new gcc 

Could be interesting if you grant the possibility to specifiy in the 
moment of installation the package that you want on your system just as 
Slackware does. It could be very useful for those( like me ) that each 
time install linux on their platform had to remove all the useless 
packages and install what they want after the installation.

I hope that it could be a good suggestion.

Thanks to all.
