Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Mark Shuttleworth is the founder of Thawte, the first certification authority to sell public SSL certificates. After selling Thawte to Verisign, Mark moved on to training as an astronaut in Russia and visiting space. Once he got back he founded Ubuntu, the leading GNU/Linux distribution. He agreed on releasing a quick interview to Free Software Magazine." One of the more interesting quotes: "With Ubuntu, it's still too early to say we've been successful. My personal goal is to make the distro sustainable - then there will be a team that pays its own way and can focus on producing the best free software desktop on the planet without my interference!"

I was referring to different package format from the point of view of a new user, but its amazing that an experienced user like you finds gentoo "Obscure" ( it is in top 10 on distrowatch) and difficult to use when you yourself write
"I can also easily try out very experimental software, even through portage (which is a real plus). It doesn't always work, but I find it's easier to deal with the resulting breakage on Gentoo than on other systems. "

Please decide if you find gentoo easy to use before posting.
