I think that it is more portable than many other solutions but makes a
bad first impression because it happens to have well documented the few
platform-dependent issues.

The only reason I've found not to use the Boehm GC is performance.  For
real-time applications, not having complete control over the GC or
performance guarantees is unacceptable.  It seems like the right choice
for everything else.
