    I'm asking myself why the distributions install every driver in the first place. I don't need Nvidia and intel (or matrox or S3) drivers if I am using an ATI card but nonetheless they are installed....

    "So what else would you like to see written"

    I would like to see an improved writing style! No usage of "per" at all, do not use colloquial speech and flowery prose (like "exciting", "fantastic",...

    If nobody bitched about it, you probably still wouldn't write summaries after your 10 page testing orgies, so here is another one:

    I think you overuse the verb "finally" [1]. It sounds impatient and in it's overuse it sounds like a little child is begging and nagging for something until it gets it. Just leave it out and the...

    so: the less complex the WM the more FPS. What about xdm? If Xfce gives me 10fps more than KDE and xdm gives me 10fps more than Xfce this could be totally worth it for a gaming machine. Please...

    come on... 100ms difference, you cannot even measure that with your watch. But you can measure the init-time after the kernel is loaded...

    I did not benchmark -Os but used it for some months instead of -O2. I felt no difference and sometimes had some segfaults that disappeared after switching back to -O2. I guess -Os is only worth...

    so the flags do exactly what the manpage says: -O2 is a good, stable optimization, while -O3 needs more compile time and may or may not improve the resulting binary so it is mostly a waste of energy...
