I've been playing a bit with my newest toy and generated some shiny graphs. Here's the first one:

And here's a second one:

So what does it mean? Very easy. The first graph is the install time of three applications. Guess who.

The second graph is the time to do two operations. Again, guess who does what.

Quite funny, isn't it?

How to screw your users

So, all ~arch Gentooists, be careful if you are using an older kernel - there's a great coreutils update (6.12) that depends on a function that only 2.6.22 kernels and later provide. It will kill your system in quite amusing ways so that you are forced to reinstall an older coreutils version and/or boot a newer kernel.
Symptoms are e.g. "touch: Function not implemented" and can be found in bug 224483.
