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's Portage was "inspired" by BSD's ports. The power of this system has kept me on gentoo for years. The package management on distros isnt that bad, it just doesnt seem right after been using gentoo for so long.. I love being able to "turn on" any feature I want and know the system is usually smart enough to figure out the dependancies. Whereas Fedora (which I do like quite a bit) I remember having to grab this devel package, then break it out, change this file, comment out line 250, download something else, and hope it all works in the end. Gentoo may seem harder, but when you want something your way, you usually get it.
