It is the chicken and the egg problem. I agree that we need affordable standard hardware to solve the software problem not that anyone is listening to us.

GCC 2.95.3 did a good job back in the day. Then came newer C standards, GCC bloat and deteriorating code generation quality. If compilers could generate good quality code, the hardware would not feel so underpowered. Compilers need affordable standard hardware to receive development. This gets us back to the chicken and the egg problem.
