I have a PIII 475 MHz machine with 256 MB of RAM. I upgraded to Fedora Core 2 a while ago and noticed my machine slowing down. Recently went to Fedora Core 3 and it slowed down again.
I was wondering would it be worth giving Gentoo ago? I have a good cable connection and the machine is basically used for some sourceforge project work, email sending and web browsing, so no biggy if the install gose west. I also have our home accounts on a different machine so theres no data loss.
Just looking for perls of wisdom, will it be worth the effort in the long run (performance V time spent)
P.S. Disclamier to not wanting to start a distro war :)
