Gentoo We got Linux distributions for geeks (Debian), distros for businessmen (Red Hat), home users (Mandrake) and... Germans (SuSE :). However, there was never before a distribution specifically targetting developers and speed, both at the same time. Enter Gentoo Linux, the fastest loading, fastest-operating Linux distribution to date.

It was concise and interesting. If/when I have the time and HD space (tiiiiime for an upgrade :/) I'm very much inclined to look into this version.

I'm also interested in your comments about FreeBSD's booting and shutdown speeds. I didn't realize it was so quick, relatively speaking.

Has anyone mentioned yet how quickly Mac OS X boots/shutsdown? (I know, that's pretty much dependent on what widgets and plugins are being installed at bootup, but still ...)
