Finally, I got Funtoo Linux, a derivative of Gentoo Linux, installed on my desktop. Funtoo is a distribution created by the founder of Gentoo, Daniel Robbins. In his website, Daniel describes Funtoo Linux as a:
Freshly-built Gentoo Linux variant, optimized for your processor, Funtoo Portage unstable branch, includes OpenRC, dhcpcd and git.
He does not call Funtoo a fork of Gentoo though. I like that since he really wants to keep the Gentoo community intact.
Installing Funtoo, for an average Linux user such as myself, was not easy. I am not a computer geek as many may think. It took me three tries to finally get Funtoo Linux to run. This brings me back to Sept., 2003, when I first tried Gentoo. It took three long tries and I nearly gave up. The same happened with Funtoo.
