Time To Try Gentoo

Ubuntu is GREAT for a new linux user.

However there are problems. Random “security” updates routinely kill various parts of the system. Unsigned updates warning me that if I install them, it could be from a malicious, unverified source. Compiling (when needed) just works half the time with unreadable errors pointing me towards log files that I have to hunt down.

Ridiculous!

Gentoo here I come. I’ve got the livecd-i686-installer-2007.0 downloaded, camera ready and I will document every step of the way.

This should be one of two things:
1. Fun.
2. Exercise in frustration.

I’ll put my money on numero dos.

    Thanks for braving forward. I am considering trying linux for the first time and am taking-in as many opinions before deciding on one. Good luck!
