Windows precompiled binaries or DIY compileby ObiPanda (Acolyte)

ObiPanda has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Is it better to use a "packaged" easily installable version of Perl such as Strawberry on a Windows OS or to compile a version or there is no practical difference, etc...?
I primarily ask for two reasons: stability and speed. An underlying assumption to both reasons is that compiling code will always be faster, because it will compile based on specific chipsets and its respective native math libraries.
