My Love/Hate Relationship

Filed under
Gentoo

Oh, Gentoo, how I really find myself hating you sometimes. Gentoo Linux is my primary operating system. Both of my primary PCs, as well as my laptop run nothing but it.

Once upon a time, Gentoo Linux was a thriving community distro. These days, I've been finding it harder and harder to find solid answers to problems I run into. Much of the time, I find a semi-related problem on Ubuntu's forums that assists me in fixing my problem on Gentoo.

Once upon a time, Gentoo's forums were filled with posts such as "how-to install xyz..." Now, almost every thread is asking a question. Sadly, there doesn't seem to be enough devs around on the forums to answer many of the questions. IRC is another option, but I've never felt right logging on to IRC just to find an answer.

The free operating system has been designed explicitly to work in the expensive or restrictive Internet data conditions that often exist in emerging markets where fabulously affordable broadband has yet to arrive. The software itself is built to provide useful information and educational content, with or without an Internet connection. Read more
