in thread 5:10: Why is this slower than 5.8.8?

This does not seem to be the public opinion in this topic. For example, FreeBSD's perl port contains the lines:
@${ECHO} " WITHOUT_PERL_MALLOC=yes Use FreeBSD system m +alloc" @${ECHO} " (uses less memory, b +ut slower)
And the hint file in the perl distribution used to have the following lines:
4.*) # In FreeBSD 4 and 5 the system malloc is performance-wise # VERY bad for Perl-- we are talking of differences of not # one, but TWO magnitudes.
This is not part of the default hint file anymore, but only because perl's malloc does not work with threaded builds, so Jarkko decided to always use the system's malloc.

[Corion]: :-D
[marto]: my desktop is a core2 duo, 120GB SSD, 4GB RAM, boots to (GUI) login in less than 10 seconds from cold start
[Discipulus]: mah, winbuntu 10...
[marto]: whent he boys start school I'll build myself as new machine, ryzen based
[Corion]: marto: That's cool! I think my (home) desktop spends 30 seconds in the BIOS...
[Corion]: marto: Heh - currently they seem promising, but I think I'll stay with nVidia+Intel for the time being, as I've been bitten too often by bad AMD drivers
Discipulus is (still?) not a big fan of notepad++
