— Which?

— Don't get libre Linux

— Asm helps to get that extra oomph of processing power. But you must really badly lack one

— You're putting yourself at a huge risk by not upgrading firmware

— 

I tried to compile with

tcc
the Hello World program I compiled with
gcc
.

It is about 12000 bytes of difference in terms of size. I like it.

— Have you compiled a striped binary without debug symbols and such?)

— Another one bites the dust...!
Banned Andrew.

— It's no way helloworld would be 12k

— I already have non-free firmware installed (iwlwifi, intel-microcode) on Devuan, so I think changing kernel won't do a thing.

I would go and change hardware later when Venezuela gets a good economy again that has libre drivers.

— Yes it will

— Libre kernels are stupid

— Tcc will always make smaller code than gcc. not faster, but smaller

— When you do not send a firmware to your device it will use outdated firmware

— Check upx too, it's a godsend for stripping binaries

— And outdated firmware will always have issues
