    boost.org

    As a common man i was wondering if it`s easy to implement these libs into any software and will there be benefits in every project in terms of performance?

    According to most c++ books I read boost should be used as if it was part of the stdlib.
    It has quiet good integration into most compiler suits and has the same quality level.

    In case that usally means something around: Use it to make progress and replace it with
    more tailored versions if you need more performance.

    I do not think boost is faster in execution terms than a custom implementation. Even more, it will be the oposite, slower and larger. The advantage is that it will be easy to implement, and less buggy, because you are building over an already tested framework.

    So it make no sense to convert existing code to boost, unless you want to tradeoff maintenance with performance.
