Sometimes, we might feel the need to build our own Distros either as a need for inch perfect optimization or for any other reason. To do this, there are two popular options. These are Gentoo which offers users a chance to “Do it Yourself” and LFS (Linux From Scratch) which offers users a chance to “Build it Yourself from Nothing”.

Gentoo offers you the control to tweak every setting, compile programs how you want it but the learning curve is really steep. LFS on the other hand let’s you build everything from nothing. It is hardcore.

Which between Gentoo and LFS do you think would be the perfect option to optimize your Linux computer to squeeze every ounce of virtue from it? Have you used anyone? Any challenges you faced? Any failures you faced?
