See http://www.freebsd.org/ for above. Short answer: 6.3 released

cc == gcc on freebsd. Unless your app requires a specific gcc
version, just use the one the system installs for you.

I've only ever had one compatibility issue with a Dell, and that was
easily fixed by teaching the bge ethernet driver the name of the
chipset used on that particular box. I have a PE1900 here we just got
and it runs 7.0-RC1 quite nicely.
In general, unless you're running some obscure devices, FreeBSD works
just fine with most systems.
