    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.

    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.

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

    Better safe than sorry :-)

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

    Which can be found on pretty much any processor from the last 10 years.
    Linux has always had great legacy hardware support, but it would be nice to have at least the option of using more optimized packages and such on at least 1 mainstream distro.
    If your hardware is that old you are probably not using the latest desktop version of Fedora anyway.

    Do I need to turn myself in for punishment? I'm currently in the process of building the systemd-based desktop profile for my hobby project computer (an ancient Alpha 21164).

    I would like to see these tests when Silverblue 30 is released. It is supposed to have optimizations focused on Workstation since it does not share the same base image with which the versions for Servers/IoT/Cloud are built.
