I decided to have one desktop where not even one piece of software is not compiled by me

You're joking, right? I know you are. Ha ha ha, you're funny! See, because you're implication is that everyone compiles from source right? And we know this is true.

That's why people have coded APT/DEB, Synaptic, Yum, Yast, Xandros Networks, PBIs, Click N' Run, Conary, etc. Because building from source is such a commonplace thing, right?

Most desktop users don't use cron for anything. In fact, I'd wager most don't even know what it is.
