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.

RE[2]: Just Works eh?

It has one now. In beta, though.

I would like to know why you think Gentoo shouldn't be allowed to exist. I mean, there does seem to be SOME sort of market for a highly customizeable, tuneable Linux system. There ARE people who use it.

It's definitely not for people who don't want to have to poke around in .config files though. Gentoo is designed for the other side of 'just works', which is 'works the way I want it to'. And yes, getting that set up takes a heck of a lot of time. That's why I switched to Ubuntu after a year of using Gentoo. I don't see this as a flaw with Gentoo; Gentoo does what it's supposed to (give or take). I just didn't like it any more.
