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.

Review is good but Gentoo is better

I may sound as pain in the ass, but Gentoo is really better than Eugenia reviewed it. At least for me - I use Gnome, not KDE. I had no problem with Grub so far - i did Gentoo on several systems in past few weeks.
It's my third attempt to get optimized Linux (after Stampede and Enoch) and this one is actually working.
Few things I'd mentioned about installation :
- boot partition doesn't have to be 100 Mb, I think it's a typo, installation instructions for earlier versions (e.g. rc6 ) had it as 10 Mb.
- have /var/tmp mounted on separate partition or volume (or whatever portage is using as work directory on your system)
