distcc is a free program to distribute builds of C, C++, Objective C or Objective C++ code across several machines on a network. distcc generates the same results as a local build and is usually much faster than a local compile. It does not require all machines to share the filesystem, have synchronized clocks, or to have the same libraries or header files installed.
💻 distcc sends the complete preprocessed source code across the network for each job, so all it requires of the volunteer machines is that they be running the distccd daemon, and have an appropriate compiler installed. distcc is nearly linearly scalable for small numbers of machines and it scales with 89% efficiency.
by planned obsolescence, more and more people are looking for sustainable alternatives. Open-source laptops offer a possible solution by allowing users to repair and upgrade their devices, extending their lifespan and reducing e-waste.Summary
Designing an open-source laptop provides an opportunity to gain valuable knowledge and share it with the community, as well as to challenge oneself and create a sustainable alternative to traditional consumer electronics.
