LXer: My Gentoo odyssey

Published at LXer:

Gentoo is a Linux distribution unlike any other I have used, not just in terms of how it does things, but in the philosophy which drives its design. Gentoo doesn't ask what it can do to make things easier, it asks you exactly what it is that you want it to do, and then does precisely and only that. I gave Gentoo a good try, but I won't be sticking with it. Why not? I'm glad you asked.

Just wanted to thank you for the heads up.

I had the live cd in my hand and I was going for it. I was searching for some unrelated piece of trivia, happened upon your article and stopped dead in my tracks. It reminded me of the bad old days when all I had was a scsi-based Mac and a cd-r of PPC 2000. I want a hobby, not a lifestyle.
