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.

Gentoo is definately not a distro for people who are used to having an installer, or people who do not like to read documentation. The Gentoo docs are the best I have ever seen, and if followed to the letter, a successfull install almost always results. Yes, Gentoo requires tweaking after getting the base system installed, so what? Gentoo is a tweaker's distro - for someone who has used GNU/Linux for so long, that should have been apparent. Don't go swimming and then complain about getting wet - it goes with the territory.
