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.

I've had experiences with most of the mainstream distributions and I chanced upon Gentoo when a friend of mine bugged me to try it. At that point of trying, I was still a relative newbie to be installing such a distribution. I did it, I managed it, I learnt alot from it. If some of my other friends who aren't all that new with Linux CAN manage to install Gentoo by reading the handbook and asking in the gentoo help channels, why can't you being a long time linux user even install it? It all comes down to what I see as, you can't be bothered to read the documentation. Gentoo has one of the most extensive documentations around and just by following it and typing almost word for word, you can get it running. Poorly written article in my opinion.
