Gentoo: Linux for Men!

Filed under

Windows is an operating system for babies. Ubuntu is a Linux distribution for normal people. Unfortunately, it’s a little difficult to hack when it doesn’t work at all!

This is the situation that I found myself in with my new notebook.

Three days went by.

I now have Gentoo running with direct OpenGL rendering, at a widescreen resolution of 1440×900.

This is a tribute to the “hackability” of Gentoo.

Gentoo, in my mind, has three main attributes: optimizability, hackability and repairability. It’s the good ol’ Land-Rover Defender of Linux distributions - when it breaks, you can fix it.

First, it’s a source distribution so everything is compiled locally.
