    SSSE3 is not the same thing as SSE3. The former was introduced a couple of years after the later.

      Yup, the _hardened_build flag was enabled for all builds in F23. Background of the change here:

      Better safe than sorry :-)

        I have to assume you are trolling with your constant promotions of Debian+XFCE, but I will grant you one thing, I have 2 old laptops, one is a single core Sony and one is a dual core Dell with an Athlon X2, the first only has a gig of ram and the second has 2 gigs.

        Neither one is fast enough to run a Gnome or KDE desktop and they barely run Peppermint OS or Lubuntu, but I decided to try Manjaro+XFCE on them and was surprised by how well they run, especially on the dual core, so i will grant you that XFCE, with the right distro underneath, can be a useful desktop for some old hardware.

        But as far as Debian is concerned, its pure garbage and so is anyone that's associated with it, including it's users.

          Time for you to upgrade to a faster system like a $10 arm sbc
          This is so funny! 😂😂😂😂😂.

          A lot of people live live in the past. Not only are those ARM based boards faster they run on a few watts.

          By the way somewhat guilty with a focus on the past, I just sent to recycling and old 80486 box. In any event modern operating systems really should require modern hardware, it is the leveraging of the hardware that leads to good performance.
