Gentoo Daniel Robbins, original creator of the Gentoo project, offers a solution to fix the recent leadership crisis at Gentoo: "I have received permission from my employer to return and serve as President of the Gentoo Foundation, renew its charter, and then work in some capacity to help to get Gentoo going in the right direction from a legal, community and technical perspective."

Nothing against anyone in the Gentoo camp, but when Robbins ran it, it was the Ubuntu of its day.


What? It might have been the easiest of the source based distros, but it was still the sort of thing that you waited for a three day weekend, for which you had nothing else planned, to try to install. Hardly "the Ubuntu of its day".

I can recommend Ubuntu to nontechnical users. I would *never* have even considered recommending Gentoo.
