Daniel Robbins: There is a large interest among the Gentoo and larger Linux user community for me to come back as Chief Architect. However, there's lots of reasons why trying to jump back into the Chief Architect role this isn't the right thing to do. The solution, I think, is to look for positive ways to improve the Gentoo community.

saigonnezumi.com: But the real big question on my mind, as the proprietor of a new start-up IT company, will Gentoo Linux have a future or will another fork of Gentoo, such as Sabayon Linux assume to role to provide support for a possible Gentoo-based Enterprise Server?

So, Can I have Gentoo back?

Daniel Robbins: It appears that the Gentoo Foundation may be disappearing in a matter of time. Apparently, no one has time to actually do the work required to run the Foundation. There seems to be some momentum building behind the idea of handing over all of Gentoo's intellectual property to another Foundation.

Linux.com: After several delays, Gentoo finally released version 2007.0, code-named Secret Sauce. Despite the extended period of development, the installable live CD and DVD versions didn't work as they should, thanks to obvious bugs with display drivers. That said, if you discount the live CD and DVD and install Gentoo the manual way it's popular for, the new version is smooth as ice.

the pcspy: I'll freely admit that it has been a long time since I've used a pure version of Gentoo. By a long time, I mean I used my friend's broadband to download the "stage 1" Gentoo V1.0 installer. Some five years later, I'm quite excited to revisit an old flame.

Gentoo

Earlier this month, Slashdot posted a piece asking whether the Gentoo project is in "crisis." The project has responded to the issues discussed in the posting, in part, by adopting a Code of Conduct (CoC), with "proctors" who will address breaches of the CoC. So far, that move seems of limited worth.
