A last example to explain the feeling of slowness: aptitude. To avoid
differences in package lists, I ran `aptitude full-update' in an up to
date sid cowbuilder (yes, there can be smarter system for benchmark, but
on the other hands we can expect some kind of standardness). On a dual
2GHz G5, the command takes around 4.1 seconds to complete. On a Core2Duo
2 GHz (amd64), it takes around 1.5 seconds.
With my lack of technical knowledge, I am obviously going nowhere. But I
hope that I can trigger the curiosity of somebody who would eventually
find "someting missing" in the default config of powerpc machines…
Have a nice day,
