    Many people like compiling for speed and/or file size. Once GCC team creates smarter/better compilers that can optimize based on the modern processor features like sse2/3 and 64-bitness, more people will consider compiling for speed gain.

    Right now I'm using new version of VLOS "gentoo based" and it has 4.0.1
    I don't use gentoo because of the "optimized binaries" or the so-called speed increase, I use it for the configurability and I like the way gentoo does things. I have a fast enough machine so that compile times don't bother me, so gentoo is perfect for me.

    I was commenting on the time it takes to compile the actual program. 4.0.2 compiles faster for me.

    Actually I dont care how long it takes anymore.. if you have 1 pc, then boot up a livecd and install gentoo that way until you have everything u want no excuses

    The code is going to suit your system, not alter your system so it can suit the code. My friend just instaled gentoo on his athlon xp 750mhz 185mb, I'm about to install on my celeron too

    Well, when I was using linux it was mostly 3.4... 4.0 seemed incomplete at the time. Its been a couple months since I've been using Linux. So, I'm guessing 4.0 is now a complete functioning version.
