distcc is a program to distribute builds of C, C++, Objective C or Objective C++ code across several machines on a network. distcc should always generate the same results as a local build, is simple to install and use, and is usually much faster than a local compile.
Reduces compile times substantially, and mixes well with ccache
What do you dislike?
Doesn't always work well.. Often you'll see warning messages that a file couldn't be distributed. Also, doesn't set itself up to start up startup, so I often have to start it on my co-workers computers after they reboot or something.
Also, I don't think the distcc product is active anymore. It does everything it promises, but it's always nice to see a project being active, now I worry it might disappear one day.
Recommendations to others considering the product
Set up distcc with ccache and ninja to reduce compile times by orders of magnitude compared to cmake builds using simply make.
