Linux 2003 was the year with Gentoo written all over it in the Linux universe. Last year was Ubuntu's & MEPIS'. I believe that Arch Linux's year is the current one. Read more for a comparison of Arch to existing distributions, and why we think it rocks and where we think it still requires some work.

Gentoo vs Arch
by Anonymous on Mon 21st Mar 2005 16:35 UTC

I have never understood why Gentoo isnt all that Arch is and way more .... would it really be that hard to keep an up2date and stable repository of core binary(GRP) packages?

Ofcourse it would require a _lot_ more resources to compile the core packages(GRP) for every USE flag setting and architecture and keep them up2date - but it would be worth it! Every year would be the year of Gentoo ;)
