Gentoo The 2008.0 final release is out! Code-named "It's got what plants crave," this release contains numerous new features including an updated installer, improved hardware support, a complete rework of profiles, and a move to Xfce instead of GNOME on the LiveCD. LiveDVDs are not available for x86 or amd64, although they may become available in the future. The 2008.0 release also includes updated versions of many packages already available in your ebuild tree.

Gentoo is a very nice Linux and its Portage is (IMHO) the best package/software management tool available today.


Gentoo's Portage seems to be inspired by FreeBSD's Ports Collection (I'm not sure what came first, but doesn't matter anyway) - it makes handling additional software installation very easy and you can dicide on different levels how "up to date" (read: cutting-edge, devlopment versions, not tested enough) you like your software.
