what improvement can  i  expect when compiling kde from the source. i did it, 
but just for fun.
can you express it in real numbers how much faster programs will run then? 
and what do you mean writing "...it will make them work with more programs".

ps: having compiled all from the source and  then writing "make clean" 
doesn´t really delete the folder with my extracted source-packages. can i 
delete the - now useless- source-folder or do i harm my system then?
