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.

Complaints about the Gentoo documentation? That's a first.

I think one thing that can said about this article is that there are likely to be others who have this experience with Gentoo. Gentoo is not for everyone I guess. Though it is for far more people than is commonly assumed.

When you are habituated to any other OS, there are bound to be some challenges when using another one, even when moving from one distribution to another.

I always assumed that the frustration involved in this was something that, except for really glaring design flaws, writers would "filter" from their articles.

Guess I was wrong.

I don't have any problem with people having a bad opinion of Gentoo or anything else, but I have to ask what purpose this article served.
