Distribution review: CRUX Linux

Up

Down

CRUX Linux is yet another source-based Linux distro.
The general perception that source distributions and optimized packages would dramatically improve system performance is an exaggeration. I don't think a i586 package would perform very differently from a i686 package, maybe with the exception of applications that are very CPU intensive. Still I found CRUX the fastest distribution I have tried so far; I have the general feeling that everything runs faster. I don't have performance tests to support my impressions, so you'll have to accept them as a personal opinion, or try CRUX yourself.
