Never Heard of Exherbo? Never Will, Either.

Filed under
Gentoo

In the open-source world, it's fairly commonplace for developers to modify an existing application and create a new application. We don't begrudge developers their fun, but Exherbo made us pause. It shares a lot of concepts from Gentoo, but Exherbo's developers claim that it is not a true Gentoo fork.

So in other words, Hi! We are playing in the open source sandbox with open source toys, but we play with only our friends. Nyah nyah.

It seems a little counterintuitive to say that users are "a detriment to the distribution's technical needs" since some of the best software features often are user-requested. It's okay -- we get it. As developers, we've created perfect applications that pesky users kept ruining because they couldn't appreciate the simplicity and elegance of our creation.
