Gentoo 2008.0: Return to greatness?

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 84.176.245.55] on August 08, 2008 11:25 AM
Hard to tell. Gentoo was my first distro. Back in 2003 as well, with release 1.4 if I remember well. But sometime around 2006 they totally lost me. As you stated, things were getting out of control. Now, thanks to Sabayon 3.5, I decided to give Gentoo one more shot (Sabayon is cool, but I still like Gentoo a little bit more). I installed Gentoo 2008-r1 as well and have been using it for about a month now. I don't like the stable Gentoo though, so I use the ustable version. Everything works great! There's one thing that bothers me though: If you use Gnome, once you install Thunar, you can't get Gnome to use Nautilus when clicking on the "Places" menu. It's really annoying.
