To immediately start putting my money where my mouth is, Gentoo will be put on my Thinkpad x61s (currently running Windows Vista Business 64-bit). I tried it before with some luck, but not a lot, as wireless and sound worked, but emerge crapped out after one too many builds. So in order to prevent this...

1st, I'll say I've always thought Blogs were trivial & Bloggers had inflated egos. Me thinking my thoughts are important to someone else is a prime example of my own over-inflated ego. So, it is doubtful I'll allow any comments on my Blog, tho I'll read...
