OK, I really like my Gentoo install so far, but I am getting really tired of compiling every little thing. After some reading, It doesn't look like compiling everything optimized isn't the wonderful boon it is made out to be. The only thing that really matters is the kernel. Everything else you can only expect a 0-15 percent increase in preformance. I am starting to look at debian again as a distro. For those of you who use it, how long does it usually take before new software is included in unstable? I noticed that MozillaFirebird is still at 0.6 and I like the bleeding edge. Is there any alternative binary distro? Maybe a bleeding edge mirror I don't know about?
