Heh, these days setting up sound servers and automounting is done for you quite automagically (well, with the proper use flags that is :p ).

But I can remember in the beginning. Back then automounting worked rather randomly.

gentoo is quite newsworthy but the very rolling structure of gentoo means releases don't make much sense and as such there aren't any of those to talk about. But that doesn't mean gentoo isn't taking big strides constantly. It is just done without fanfare.

The Fedora and Ubuntu-devs tend to scream out loud everytime they fix a detail, gentoo-devs just post a reply in a bug-report when a detail is fixed. And then we all rejoice ;)
