Actual results:

Is it possible to make Gecko compatible with free and open-source compilers? Wikipedia article has included the following criticism about Gecko:

“On Windows and similar platforms, Gecko depends on non-free compilers. Thus, FOSS distributions of Linux can not include the Gecko package used in the Windows compatibility layer Wine.”
