Gentoo The 2008.0 final release is out! Code-named "It's got what plants crave," this release contains numerous new features including an updated installer, improved hardware support, a complete rework of profiles, and a move to Xfce instead of GNOME on the LiveCD. LiveDVDs are not available for x86 or amd64, although they may become available in the future. The 2008.0 release also includes updated versions of many packages already available in your ebuild tree.

I'm glad they released 2008.0. I used gentoo on my desktops and laptops from aug 2002 till december 2008 when I got my new laptop (Lenovo T61p) and switched to Fedora.

The half year before that Gentoo felt very broken and I just wanted to have a working situation that lasted longer then two weeks.

It still saddens me I had to switch...


I'm not sure what you were doing, but I use Gentoo as my primary OS on all 3 machines I work on (home desktop, Work desktop, laptop), and none of them feel "very broken" every two weeks.
