Linux After reading a discussion on DistroWatch asking if users were happy with their current distribution, I noticed a common thread of those who have had similar experiences as myself with juggling various Linux distributions. Like myself, they feel many Linux distributions are great, but no one quite feels like home. None of them quite fit the bill and they may even begin to think that every OS sucks.

If I needed to upgrade a certain component in FreeBSD due to a security issue, all I need to run is portupgrade. Old stuff goes out, new stuff goes in, all dependencies resolved. Try that in linux with 40 programs installed from source with customized ./configure options...

It's called Gentoo. Works well with much more than just 40 programs installed.
