Re:My workstation OS: Gentoo

I don't know, he may know exactly what Gentoo is. I used it for a while, and really got tired of the all day compiles. To upgrade KDE or Gnome on a 2.8ghz cpu with 1gb of ram took over two hours! That is just plain stupid.

While it may be a nice distro to run if you are some kind of purist and want only source, I'll stick with Debian and dpkg.

Yeah I know about the Stage 3 packages, but then why run Gentoo at all?

I guess it amounts to different strokes for different folks. I just don't have the patience to have my PC compile packages all day. I want to use the damn thing.
