Tux Machines (TM)-specific
Yeah, yeah, there’re guys out there that really enjoy tuning their cars, travelling around by plane, doing whatever and those claiming Genoo Linux is of ultimate performance.
That might be the case - although I think a few % (if even) of performance because a program has been compiled for an Athlon XP prior are rather placebo than real speed.
For instance, Gentoo offers distribution of programs by source so that it will be compiled first. It’s not a big thing to compile some libraries or little tools. But isn’t it a waste of energy resources to compile things like KDE, Gnome, Kernels for every new version?
