Systemtrash Episode 004: Gentoo 2006.0

Filed under
Gentoo

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.'

... sounds serious.

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.

  • The Best Graphics Card Brands For NVIDIA/AMD GPUs As A Linux Consumer?
    One of the most frequent topics I'm emailed about is any brand recommendations among NVIDIA and AMD AIB partners for graphics cards. For Linux users, is there a particular brand preference for graphics cards? The short story is, no, there isn't one particular brand when selecting either a GeForce or Radeon graphics card that a Linux gamer/enthusiast should go with over another AIB partner. Over the past 12 years of running Phoronix, there has been no single AIB partner that superbly stands out compared to the rest when it comes to graphics card AIB partner brands like ASUS, Zotac, HIS, MSI, etc. They all work under Linux, rarely the AIB differences extend beyond the heatsink/cooler and any default clock speed differences, and I haven't seen one that's over-the-top crazy about Linux. I also haven't seen any major partner consistently put the Tux logo or other Linux markings on their product packaging, let alone incorporate any Linux drivers onto their CD/DVD driver media.
