Unfortunately "I" am not a "You". "I" am a large corporation, subject to the OS 
by my significant software vendors. Even if I did want to move to a new version
of RHEL, that is a significant process, involving many thousands of machines
that would take over a year.


I assume the requirement for RHEL7 is due to a small number
of features that I could not care less about, that most desktop
developers could not care less about.


If you can build with GCC 4.8 on "Generic Linux" why does
RHEL7 require GCC 5.3.1


So, I guess I have to stick with 5.9 (LTS)
