Gentoo "It's been a while since I last reviewed Gentoo Linux because there haven't been too many significant changes in the past few releases. I've been using it as my primary desktop operating system for a year and a half, though, and I've been running my main Web/email/database server on it since October of 2004. There's a reason why I've stayed with it that long, both as a desktop and server OS - and there's also a reason why I'm writing a review of the 2006.0 release after a long hiatus from Gentoo reviews."

The Gentoo CDs are at most released quarterly so you get Gentoo 2006.0 to 2006.3 or 2006.4

It's better than the other distros really. Can anybody tell me when FC3 or FC4 or when Mandrake 8.0 was released?

At least with Gentoo you can figure out when.

Besides, Gentoo installs are mostly "timeless". A emerge sync later and you'll be installing the latest stable packages anyways even if you're using the 2004.3 CD for example
