Gentoo "Over the past few days, I discovered that the Gentoo Foundation's charter is in the process of being revoked by the state of New Mexico, apparently due to regular paperwork not being filed by the trustees. What this means is that the Gentoo Foundation is currently hanging for its life by a string, and at any day could cease to exist as an entity. That is the very bad news. The good news is that I was able to talk to Grant Goodyear (trustee) this morning on the phone, and I have confirmed that Grant had received my email about the revocation issue that I sent 2 days ago and that he will be resolving this critical issue in the next couple of days by filing the appropriate paperwork with the state of New Mexico, and this paperwork will also remove me as President of the Foundation."

Well the paperwork got behind, like this never happens. It's being addressed and Gentoo will be around for a long time.

As to the post about wanting Gentoo to be more n00b friendly, sorry but that's not Gentoo. You must get under the hood and learn, the documentation is about the best around. If you don't want to take the time to learn and want it to do everything for you (n00b friendly) then go with Ubuntu, Xandros, Linspire, etc. and yes get a Mac.

Gentoo is awesome because I build a system that is exactly what I want and Portage makes it so easy to maintain. I try other flavors but I'm always coming back to Gentoo.

The forums are great, but yes there are the "I'm leaving" posts, name one distro that doesn't.
