- Thread-topic: [SLUG] Re: pentium M series
I just "googled" for "benchmark performance linux kernel i386 versus
i686" and found nothing of any import. I am just wondering if anyone has
bothered doing this. It would be nice to know what the tradeoff is
between performance and convenience of not needing to know the CPU
architecture. Using multi-CD distros I would also choose the closest
matching kernel, but for my Ubuntu installs I haven't bothered.

More kernel bloat. Debian woody had most of the 4th CD taken up with
various kernels. You can have a *lot* of variations in your kernel
config, it seems...
