10th Anniversary of Gentoo

Filed under
Gentoo

NeddySeagoon and I have been trying to figure out the official 10th anniverary date of Gentoo, and here are the dates I've figured out so far:

* Apr, 1999 - Was working on Enoch - wrote xpak .tbz2 code that is still in Portage

* May 18-27, 1999 - First version of Enoch released, according to LWN.net. My blurb for Enoch: "Enoch is an advanced GNU/Linux distribution for the x86 PC Architecture, designed to bring your Linux experience into a new dimension. Or something like that."

* Aug, 1999 - My new dual Celeron mobo would not run Linux, went to FreeBSD, Achim Gottinger kept Enoch going

* Late 1999 - Must have came back to Enoch and done the Gentoo name change right about now - the "Gentoo" name was Bob Mutch's idea - started incorporating some FreeBSD ideas into Enoch - Portage (as we know it today) was born.

* July 26, 2000 - Gentoo 1.0 release "imminent", cvs online, rsync "coming soon"

rest here
