Whice compiller is better?
GCC or MinGW?
Your question does not make sense.
MinGW is a toolset for Windows which includes a port of (the Linux version of) GCC.
Are you asking is the Linux version of GCC better that its port for MinGW on Windows?
As far as I understand, the compiler itself it pretty much identical, though it does lag a bit when it comes to the release or a particular version.
But the libraries provided with MinGW do have some holes cf. the original Linux ones.
