Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris "Just days after the Mandriva community started its own plans for the next release of the French Linux distribution, its commercial sponsor has formally announced that the community will take the lead on all Mandriva Linux development moving forward. In a blog post on the Mandriva SA site, CEO Jean-Manuel Croset ceded control of the Mandriva Linux distribution back to the community at large." Take 'r 'round the shed and put a bullet 'tween 'r eyes already.

Member since:

I don't know, all the tests I've seen suggested (if memory does not fail me) that such compile-time optimisations usually give negligible gains, at best (and, in very memory & bandwidth constrained situations, sometimes harm - but really, also negligible)

If that was about "feel" ...easy to fall into ~placebo without proper ABX procedures, with such minuscule differences. RAM amount and HDD speed were more responsible for feel also back then.
(and certainly are on my dual PII 266 that I keep around)
