Both tools give the same information, hence the point is proved.
Anyway, I was not trying to argue on that aspect, just that I am used
to kernrate (when you build using MSVC).
I normally used to build using MinGW/GCC but felt the need to work on
getting back the MSVC build too. I still find debugging with GDB on M$
not as good as debugging on GNU/Linux. Easier to use proprietary
debuggers on M$ as they can handle crash files which GDB cannot in its
current state. So, the lack of proper debugging support in GDB for M$
makes my use MSVC.
