Gentoo

There was an interesting thread I read in the forums this morning that was talking about the general process of stabling software, and while I found the original poster's statement very interesting, I posted my own thoughts in response in a few posts in return that I considered shed light on how the scenario really is in developing for Gentoo. Writing about it really got me thinking about the distribution as a whole, and why I like it, and why I keep coming back to it. In short, why I freaking love Gentoo.

I'm going on my eighth year or so of using it. I don't know the exact timeline, but I'm pretty sure I've used it since around April of 2002 or so. I'm also coming up on my fourth year of being a Gentoo developer. That just blows me away. I've also started recently getting a resurgence of interest in working on the development side again, something I'm really glad to see, since I have been progressively phasing myself out over the past few months. Quite recently, though, I've managed to get myself much more organized and that has given me a much bigger picture of areas where I want to focus (and ones I want to drop interest), and so that has made it working on Gentoo fun again. Smile For the record, that's how it should always be.

While GNOME 3.22 Beta was announced on August 22, it appears that the maintainers of certain core packages needed a little more time to work on various improvements and polish their applications before they were suitable for public testing. And this is the case of GNOME Control Center, which was recently updated to version 3.21.90, which means 3.22 Beta. Read more
