Gentoo is back
Slackware was OK, used dropline gnome, which was quite good to get a nice desktop, but I just found using the package manager to be a little cumbersome, and finding built packages sometimes tricky. I know that just about everything I need is in portage and it's just easy to update programs and install new ones.
I am very happy to have Gentoo back in business!!
Yeh Gentoo is a great distro im running it on all my machines except one Debian box. Portage is great im still waiting for a binary version so you can quickly install the binarys if you dont want to compile. I can see good things for Gentoo.
Gentoo runs on my desktop and my iBook...very happily, I might add. Portage is great...it's easy to configure everything and even easier to break everything.
Overall, it's just a great way to learn a lot about Linux."Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so."
