    The automatic desktop environment detection is definetely a great feature.
    I noticed a huge performance drop (up to 50%) on my old Computer with an X1600 when running KDE4 in background.

    I tested version 1 or so and there were some problems while using it on a PPC architecture. Are other architectures supported now (if the game is available of course)?
    And I would like to see how much compiling with flags makes applications faster, are flags supported, and the comparison with different/no flags enabled?

    x86 and x86_64 are always well tested. Beyond that, I don't have any access to PowerPC hardware so that goes untested. However, in recent versions, there is more work with architecture detection and test profiles that notify pts-core whether they have architecture limitations, etc. I'd be interested in knowing how it works for you on PowerPC.

    Additionally, even just the phoronix-test-suite system-info output from PowerPC would be interesting to see if that works.
