Tux Machines (TM)-specific
I finally removed myself from all the Gentoo mailing lists. I did this with some sad thoughts. I had been using gentoo for almost 4 Years and it taught me quite a lot about Linux. Unfortunately I have been seeing the Gentoo project die over the past year or so.
After going to the Gentoo UK meeting in 2006 I noticed that nothing important / technical was discussed. It was all about the flame wars going on on the mailing lists. "How do we get more girls into gentoo? etc..". My friends that joined me, are still joke about it (Thx Will + Edd). Already then I could see the crumbling of the base.
After some time I noticed that more and more packages where without developers and people didn't answer emails anymore. Version didn't get updated. That was the time when I decided I had to move.
