This is very true.

The reason is easy to understand: why should I, as a software developer,
should use GCC instead of Clang when *both are Free Software* and
Clang's development is focused on creating the best tool for the user
while GCC is hindered by someone else's views about how to protect me
from hypothetical perils? Why should I use the crippled tool?
