Linux 2003 was the year with Gentoo written all over it in the Linux universe. Last year was Ubuntu's & MEPIS'. I believe that Arch Linux's year is the current one. Read more for a comparison of Arch to existing distributions, and why we think it rocks and where we think it still requires some work.

Ubuntu x86_64

Ubuntu x86_64 doesn't run slow at all,well at least on my AMD64 XP3000+ 1024 DDRam system,neither do CentOs,RHEL4.0,Fedora.No need per se for optimized CFLAGS etc.
there isn't much difference between AMD64 GENERIC and AMD64athlon/opteron in terms of performance than between a i386 and a P4 or Atlon-xp.
