Hmmm...it's fitting that you picked wine tasting, since that's also been shown to be mostly BS via blinded tests. Dowsers also fool themselves into thinking they have some amazing power, yet fail every scientific test, notably ones where they agreed to every condition beforehand, then try and make excuses afterwards. https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way ... find-pipes

The one that comes from the Debian repos. Whatever version that is at the moment. Works for me.

I used to compile my own kernels, back in 1999 or so. Now that you're unlikely to find a machine with so little RAM that a custom kernel is needed, why bother with the added effort?
I haven't had any problems whatsoever with the stock kernel, and the supposed "optimisations" in e.g. the Liquorix build don't make any noticeable difference, at least as far as I can tell.

Do you play games or make multimedia edition at this machine? For me it made difference on that.

If by "make multimedia edition" you mean video editing, then no. But I play plenty of games.

Multimedia means all media types, video, image and audio.
