Re: Which Linux Distubtion do you use..

Fine question. Some distros are binary-based and others by source.
Source-built systems, e.g. my Gentoo, is compiled for this machine
specifically. Since the code is for this setup, the code can be leaner as
it is not required to be a "One size fits all" install.

Dunno about your kernels but mine are <1.7 MB with only 5 modules running
and 32 procs at CLI.
