Which C library does it use? I seem to recall that the operating system
uses, (does use), (still uses), a C library originally created for the
original BSD operating system appropriately updated to accommodate the
continued updates to hardware.

And given that the nature behind how everything evolves faster then =
we do need to select an appropriate compiler so that we can continue to
deliver the best here.
