But when you're dealing with complex enough data structures (lots of cycles, trees with pointers to each other and so on), explicit memory management moves from 'deterministic' to 'lethally complex and horrifically annoying'. That's when GC really starts to be useful (and that's why GCC has a special-purpose garbage collector of its very own.)
