Take Advantage of Open Source Products

Open source products come with their source code files. Although you can usually install a ready-made executable file, you want to take advantage of the available source code files and compile them by yourself. This way, you can optimize and customize the resultant executable. For example you can choose to trade program's size for speed or vice versa, remove unneeded debugging information it, and make use of other peculiar compiler and linker options to optimize the application's performance.
