Among other things their site mentions the following:
'We produce Gentoo Linux, a special flavor of Linux that can be automatically optimized and customized for just about any application or need. Extreme performance, configurability and a top-notch user and developer community are all hallmarks of the Gentoo experience.'

I'm just now getting around to watching their latest video. I'm not very far into it, but I didn't think it was gonna go too well for gentoo if it only got a 2 out of 10. But already I have to comment:

I don't think I was pissed. I don't get mad. I get even! lol j/k

Actually, all I said to them was:

Dimi did a fairly good job with PCLinuxOS, but I think a link to my site as your reference for the background material on Texstar and PCLOS would have been in order. It's only common courtesy.

As for his comments about my slow site - yeah, I know. It's not linux or drupals fault. It's bellsouth's business dsl up-pipe. And I think he was visiting and commenting right when a link to my kororaa xgl story was on the front page of digg. Sorry.

Ubuntu-Based ExTiX OS Updated for Intel Compute Sticks with Improved Installer

GNU/Linux developer Arne Exton announced this past weekend the release of an updated build of his Ubuntu-based ExTiX Linux distribution for Intel Compute Stick devices. Last month, we reported on the initial availability of a port of the ExTiX operating system for Intel Compute Sticks, boasting the lightweight and modern LXQt 0.10.0 desktop environment and powered by the latest Linux 4.8 kernel, tweaked by Arne Exton for Intel Atom processors. And now, ExTiX Build 161203 is out as a drop-in replacement for Build 161119, bringing a much-improved Ubiquity graphics installer that should no longer crash, as several users who attempted to install the Ubuntu-based GNU/Linux distro on their Intel Compute Stick devices reported.
