That's a pretty good system...

13 Hours???
Do you ever compile your own kernels?

You mind if I ever ask for help on compiling?

On Gentoo you must compile your own kernel.There are no binary kernels available through the package manager. There's a tool called "genkernel" to try and help automate the task.It will build a lot of modules that you probably won't ever need and, of course, adds a lot of time to compile because of all the extras.This builds a more generic style kernel with an initrd.
Sure. I don't mind trying to help.

" 13 Hours??? " Build time is what keeps most people from source based distros.

So, why do you use a source-based distro?

I like the cpu specific optimization mostly.Also, most linux software has options that can be enabled or disabled at compilation time.So I end up with more of what I want and less of what I don't.

Yes, so I've read. Is it worth the time to compile everything from source?

I currently use Fedora12 and compile stuff every once in a while... today it was MOC (terminal music player), but never anything too big or complicated.
Not used to it either.

The speed difference can be very obvious for somethings.As far as time needed to build, well the faster your machine the less time needed.I was lurking around this thread, [thread]http://freeperl.ru/t257263-p2-firefox-36.html[/thread] and I think that the Google V8 benchmark was the benchmark mister_playboy was talking about.

So I tested my firefox build and came up with:
Score: 427
Richards: 1523
DeltaBlue: 130
Crypto: 1160
RayTrace: 302
EarleyBoyer: 326
RegExp: 175
Splay: 655

here I found an article with some numbers to use for comparison

I had no idea compilers affected the performance of the software!!!

Thanks for the link.

Well not so much if you ask me. Ok it's a little tricky the installation, but without a doubt it worth. I've tried Debian, Fedora & Mandriva before, and for me this is The Distro : is fast, simple and very very stable.

p.s.

Oh, and it's 'bleeding-edge', without being something like testing
