Great link. But hopefully they will speed up the search engine (kinda slow atm) and keep adding more distros..

This has been round for ages and believe you me it's a lot faster than it used to be. If only there was one for UK/European distros.

Seems like a good idea. Needs just more distros.

Actually planned to make simular service(but with a bit different features) year ago or so but due natural lazyness i even never started....
anyway pretty cool that it is get done by someone, and well i dont believe that there is possible too much speed up, cause parsing data from websites is not fastest process, as well as search request ... though cashing might help, but again it will work only for searches that was done before

You think you are lazy?

I demand that someone like Yosuke just automatically stocks what is needed so I have no need to look elsewhere.

I expect customer service like that. Laughing

Just ran 5 random searches:

15.5 seconds
8.5 seconds
27.5 seconds
8.9 seconds
12.6 seconds

leaps and bounds better than any alternative!

Perhaps if it starts to get more attention he will expand it. I'm assuming the guy is from America, so perhaps in the future (and with some help) he can get a Europe and/or World option. Definitely a lot of potential here, its running very nicely as far as I can tell.

I'm sure the slowness is due to the fact that it's doing realtime searches for all the distros when you perform a search. It has to wait for 76 websites to return results.

Whether or not the search takes 2 minutes or 2 seconds, your order is still gonna take at least a week to get to you Laughing
