On a use basis, gcc can't handle C++ style functions.  Early in my Linux days, I only knew gcc  (never had heard of g++), and when I tried to compile a C++ program with it, I had all kinds of problems and errors.  After finding about g++, that program compiled without a hitch.

BTW, g++ can compile anything that gcc can (to my knowledge).
