How many of you actualy have gentoo installed?
yeah. I have done a complete install. wifi, graphcis, sound, KDE (I just picked KDE because why not), and everything else that is necessary. it was a lot of fun, only took two days first full install. if I do that a few more times, I can get gentoo installed in a matter of hours.
Installed it three times.Was not impressed.Seriously,it's not even that great.It's more of a pain to install than Arch, and it's effort to pay-off ratio is miniscule.Recommened only for autists with hang ups over the most niggling details.
back in 2004 - 2006 i use to use gentoo as my only distro and linux as my only OS.
it was great then. had a amd 3500+ and then upgraded to a 4800+. those compile times on the 4800+ at the time where amazing since it was a dual core.
then when vista came out i went back to windows for muh dx10 games.
then around 2008 i started to mess around with arch linux as a dual boot. herd people say it was like gentoo but binary and better community. been using arch since along with windows - muh games.
