A Gentoo diary: Intro

Gentoo

Tired of normal distro reviews, I decided to write a review in the form of a diary. Written by an intermediate Gentoo user, this review offers some insight in administering a Gentoo desktop. So bear with me while I try to make my stuff work!

Now, I could just start to write about the things I tried the last few days, but it would be a good idea to introduce you to my desktops.

Desktop environment

Most Linux users use KDE or Gnome. I don't. I like the spartan, light way of life; why should you slow down your fast processor with graphics reminding you of baby fashion? Yes, also talking about the notorious Teletubby-hill and all that comes with it here.

Therefore, I use WindowMaker, with a real minimum of decorations. My opinion is, KDE and Gnome are most of the times easy to use, but they make it hard to have a mixed environment.
