The Thrilling World of Compiler Optimization!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS from The Hacks!

Tom and Chunga are getting ready for their year end holiday break!  Wow, what an incredible and chaotic year its has been for both of them.

As the year comes to a close, The Hacks has historically chosen to spend their last episode reviewing the biggest events of the past 12-months, etc. This year however, Tom has asked to change things up a bit and focus on something super nerdy.  He wants to have fun getting into the weeds of a process hes known about but hasn’t bothered doing for decades.  It’s called “Compiler Optimization”.  Chunga has no idea what that is, but ok!  He’s all in to talk about it!

As most of you know, Tom loves Arch Linux. It’s been his preferred for as long as he can remember. Recently, he learned about a new system that recompiles all of the Arch Linux packages, and optimizes them to current and/or different benchmarks, so that everything runs faster and simply put, better on x86, 64-bit, CPU’s. 

How does it work and is it something that you should try?  Listnen NOW and decide for yourself!

Tom and Chunga would like to thank each and every one of you for listening to The Hacks!  They hope you have a wonderful holiday season and wish you all a Happy New Year!  See you in 2024!!
