Gentoo Linux 12.0 LiveDVD was released recently. We were the first ones to announce the release of Gentoo. Although not as popular as Ubuntu , this Linux distro is good enough for those who want to learn more about their system's functionality and GNU/Linux. It uses Portage package manager which is also used by Chrome OS and Chromium OS.
Another version of Gentoo linux is released, the Put a cow in your Boxen edition. It is no easier than its previous version as there is no installer included in the DVD. That makes it very tough when you want to actually install the DVD. But it is advisable to avoid installing Gentoo from a DVD. You can test the distro with the DVD and if you do not have a Internet connection then you can use this as offline repositories. Gentoo Linux 12.0 DVD comes with loads of applications.
