saigonnezumi.com: Last month I posted an article on my frustration with Gentoo. After I posted the article, I realized that the Compiz Fusion install was actually the culprit in breaking my last Gentoo system. Last night I decided to give Gentoo 2008.0 beta2 a try. All I got to say is wow!
ronaldsteelman.com: Recently I decided that it was time I picked up some flavor of Linux and give it a try. I’ve installed Gentoo in the past, with some difficulty, but never stuck with it for long. The second time around with Gentoo wasn’t as bad as the first.

And: Gentoo Software that never made it

saigonnezumi.com: Using Gentoo Linux, you have to get used to things just breaking, especially in the last couple of years. I have been quite impressed with Portage 2 the last couple months. Things seem to be improving. Yesterday I noticed that I had a problem with my screen resolution.
