Tux Machines (TM)-specific
About 3 months ago I had installed SuSe 10.1 on my computer and was thrilled about it but I always had a passion for trying something new and exciting. I always heard about Gentoo Linux that it was “the bomb”, a great distribution that had it all: speed, functionality, stability, a great package manager, the works, but always had a disadvantage: hard to install.
Well…not hard, but difficult, a installation that demands a pack of Linux based knowledge, and here i don’t refer the knowledge to install a package or how to open a document or these kind of things, but pure knowledge about the Linux itself, how it works and so on, so for a regular user who is looking for a office-based workstation or wants to brows the Internet and listen to some music in a secure and stable environment Gentoo does not seem the logical choice. Still Gentoo’s installation process has been simplified.
