[News] Gentoo Wins Hearts and Keeps Hearts

Hash: SHA1

Why am I moving to Gentoo?

,----[ Quote ]
| So to summarize all that next time I’m asked “why Gentoo?” my answer should 
| be “because I feel at home with it”.  I don’t mind if you keep using Debian.  
| Debian is a great operating system; I still use it as my disc-encryption file 
| server. Still, I don’t feel at home there. I have seen my more: this more is 
| Gentoo.    


Finding a new distro... part 1?

,----[ Quote ]
| I've been looking pretty seriously at Arch to replace Gentoo, so this post 
| will describe my experiences and impressions thus far. I set up a VM to try 
| the install and get a feel for the distro, and so far it seems OK. The 
| install was easy and pretty fast, although I would have liked the ability to 
| configure my kernel at install -- a step that, at least after years of 
| Gentoo, was conspicuously missing.     



Gentoo still rules

| Gentoo is pretty good for this kind of thing, whatever its other
| shortcomings. Does any other distro make it this easy to do such things? (I'm
| genuinely curious.)


Viva Gentoo

| Talking about a light desktop, there is now a Gentoo project to bring LXDE,
| the Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment, to our beloved distro. I already
| committed PCManFM, a fast and lightweight, tabbed GTK+ file manager, which is
| used as the default file manager in LXDE.


Satisfied Gentoo users

| If you, like me, would rather “think positive” — life can be depressing
| enough as it is — then here are some more recent, positive, reactions from
| satisfied Gentoo users...


I keep coming back to Gentoo!

| And in general, portage and all the gentoo associated tools feel better,
| maybe because I have become more accustomed to them. And final point, I do
| not have to install g++, it is already installed. The toolchain is already
| there to compile anything that I want.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
