For lazy admins, they forgot an important one...

Trick #11: Don't run Gentoo

(oh, snap!)

I love Gentoo, run it on my home box, it has a lot of redeeming qualities but seriously - it's not for the unambitious.

I don't want to be lazy, am downloading Gentoo right now. Have you got Flash to work on the 64 bit OS?

I believe my 64 bit Ubuntu is making me lazy. She is a very good desktop.

Yup. It works. I've moved my main two boxes from Gentoo 32 (installed back in 2002, Gentoo 1.2) to 64 a week ago.w
