GCC stands for GNU Compiler Collection. It is a compiler system licensed under the GPL and is part of the GNU toolchain. Originally, it stood for GNU C Compiler because it could only compile C, but it has since gained support for various languages.
GCC is ubiquitous in GNU/Linux systems and is very often used to compile the Linux kernel. It is one of the most mature compiler suites available today.
