Gentoo revisited

Writing about web page http://www.gentoo.org

So I have recently revisited gentoo again. It is a source based distro, i.e. you download and build everything from source.

A lot of people complain that the installer is difficult but I disagree. Sure there is no point and click GUI, but you do not actually need to know anything more to install it then you do for most distros.

Anyway, I recently installed it on my amd64 laptop (although I chose the x86 source tree) and boy is it quick :)

I used to play with it a lot, but recently switched to ubuntu, which is by far the best distro if you are looking for a quick install->fully featured distro. As it is based on debian, it is rock solid and apt-get just rocks!

Anyway, heres to gnome on gentoo :)
