Feedback (...to be or not to be?)

Salutations... :good:

Should performance take a back seat to compatibility?
Or... is there a grey area where binary dropins and forks are acceptable?

Ok... :oops: I confess. I'm from Jersey... (the 6th bourough of NYC?).
Worse is better

I'm interested in feedback from a technical standpoint (as opposed to idealogical?).
Pls Note: All thoughts from the "community" are encouraged (so don't sit on the fence).

In any case... I'm not exactly sure why Porteus does not use the following... :unknown:

Musl (instead of Glibc)...

Tcc/Llvm "runtime" (instead of Gcc)...

Best Regards... :beer:

We must stay compatible with upstream and Slackware uses glibc and gcc for almost all packages.

Does that mean then... that all forks and dropins are OS deal breakers? :unknown:
