If you’ve read some of the other articles on the site, you may have gathered that I have three RasPis doing useful things around my home:
- Pi #1 is running Raspbmc, an XBMC media centre port for the Raspberry Pi.
- Pi #2 is running this website plus an email server.
- Pi #3 is running the Dropbox replacement OwnCloud.
All three of these ran reasonably quickly out of the box, but because the Pi is such a low powered device, every little performance boost helps.
Having said that, this is no small improvement, and the performance gain is instantly apparent.
