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.

This isn't the first time I tried Gentoo, actually. It's the first time to got to USE Gentoo.

My first try was a networkless install, which failed because the documentation was wrong, and I didn't know enough about Gentoo to get past this step. I also ran into a documentation error in the install that prompted this opinion piece, but I booted to the CD again and was able to find and fix the problem. Gentoo's docs haven't been very helpful for me.

For the record, I don't think Gentoo sucks, I just didn't like it. Nor did I ever say that it sucked (nor did I hurl insults, for that matter). I need to make that clear. Similarly, I don't think babaganoush sucks, I just don't like it. But my mother always told me, "How do you know if you don't like it ..."
