3 Days with gentoo

Filed under
Gentoo

So I finally made my choice of new distros. I opted for gentoo. I actually tried archlinux first but it annoyed me insanely within ten minutes. Now I last used Gentoo a good 3 years ago, so a lot has changed, here then, a short review after my first 3 days, as we speak - I just loaded up my first functional KDE desktop.

The good:
Gentoo works. It takes some setups and even I did the initial stage3 install by following the manual along, but once running, things tend to be very fast. The system has a habit of being bleeding edge and you can do setups and customizations like nothing else allows.

the bad
On the downside: Gentoo takes ages to set up, especially if your computer and bandwith aren’t great. I’ve spent most of 3 days compiling just to get a KDE desktop up and running, several times I had to reemerge something.
