Gentoo I've been wanting to try Gentoo for some time, but always had to roll my eyes at the pages and pages of installation instructions. This time, however, I rolled up my sleeves and buckled down. Minutes later, I was on my way.

"Let's not all be a bunch of Luddites here and accept progress.

Point made?"

No, not really. But I agree - progress is a good thing and things don't need to be as complicated as they were when things were less understood. For example, I have no desire to screw with IRQ settings on an ISA card ever again. Progress is good.

But you set out to use a Linux distro that is all about tweaking, customizing, getting under the proverbial hood, and so forth. Yet you expected it to "just work" without being required to read a few things? That's very naive don't you think? You want something like Ubuntu, not Gentoo.

And comparing a web browser to an entire Operating System isn't a realistic comparison.
