Gentoo 2008.0: Return to greatness?

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 126.66.64.1] on August 08, 2008 11:24 AM
During those 3 years with Gentoo (choosing it after 3 years with Debian) I'm still sticking to it. It gives me control, usability and verstility. I miss some features though but I'm just freak who wants to automate everything :-)

If you need to set up 1200 servers get Ubuntu, Kubuntu or any other.... let God bless you, but you'll fail to automate them :-)

Instead, choose Gentoo. Pick up only useful tools (kernel of your choice, your services, tools for automating), prepare central Portage tree and distfiles... All of the sudden.. you are in control.

Nothing truly changed during those years, only OSS is bigger, faster, smarter.
