And if waving a dead chicken over the laptop would have been empirically 
proven before my own eyes to get better performance, I would have done 
that too.

I don't remember how exactly I arrived at my choice of distro, kernel 
flags, window manager or decision to run all critical audio apps as 
root. Bad geek that I am. But I can say I spent a year (back when I was 
a good geek and cared about this stuff) researching how to get the best 
I could out of PD + Linux on my own hardware and for my own purposes, 
and these are the things I learned. Laugh if you like.
