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."

"Yes, and it's a pitty. A few years ago Gentoo meant getting the latest and greatest software on your desktop all the time, now even Debian testing does a better job in some cases. I think Gentoo has been falling behind for some time now, too bad because it's my #2 favourite. But I am sure they can get back on track with a bit of reorganization, like Debian did."

The *real* problem (which anyone who jumped on the dev channels or mailing lists would see) is that the ratio of packages to developers is always growing, as users want more, and less people are volunteering.

If you don't like things the way they are, give them a hand. They really do need it.
