i would give the same device for *any* type of software since the whole 
operating system including the kernel itself these days is built with 
shared modules and you hardly gain anything measureable just because one 
piece of your system is statically compiled

when it's mostly interesting on very slow embedded devices where it 
makes a small difference in startup time when a lower amount of files 
needs to be loaded
