Is Gentoo dying?

Ubuntu

jldugger.livejournal: A recent cnet article suggests that Ubuntu is eating other distribution's lunch. In particular, one distribution is reported to be falling apart: Gentoo. Gentoo was very popular among my friends at the time I adopted Linux, but from what I've seen, the project fell apart as developers were unable to come to consensus or resolve conflicts.

I keep coming back to Gentoo!

rahulthewall.wordpress: I don’t know why, but somehow after using Gentoo it is impossible for me to use any other Linux Distro. I wanted to try KDE-4.1.1 quickly and I burned Kubuntu Ibex Alpha 6. I could only tolerate it for 45 minutes.

KDE
Gentoo

freehackers.org: On July 29th, KDE 4.1, the first almost usable KDE version since the 3.5 branch, has been released, and since then guess what happened in the gentoo-kde land? Nothing. Rumors are that developers have fought each others and the kde team is just no more.

Gentoo 2008.1 Release Solutions

Gentoo

Daniel Robbins: Gentoo seems to be having problems with .”1” releases – 2007.1 was cancelled and now 2008.1 has been cancelled. The Gentoo project has also announced a desire to move to a more “back to basics approach” where they are doing weekly builds of Gentoo stages. Good idea.

A Distribution, an Audience, and the Passage of Time

Gentoo

ostatic.com: Gentoo Linux has had a rough time of it the last few years. Matt Asay at CNET suspects Ubuntu's rising star is responsible. Having used both distributions extensively, and strongly preferring one, I agree with Asay. However, an average Gentoo user is usually not asking the same from his machine as a typical Ubuntu user.

wonkabar.org: DistroWatch has yet another “the sky is falling” post about Gentoo, and, going against habit, I’m going to comment on the situation in general.

Gentoo: New release strategy to provide more current install media

Filed under
Gentoo

gentoo.org: In future releases, Gentoo will focus on a more back-to-basics approach that will give you up-to-date install media on a regular basis and make much better use of our human resources. Consequently, we're canceling the 2008.1 release.

  • Star Traders: 4X Empires Strategy Game Now On Linux
  • 5 reasons Valve's Steam Machine dream is still very alive
    Steam Machines? More like has-been machines, am I right? Actually, no: while many people are giving Valve's PC-console-hybrids the cold shoulder, this gamer reckons they'll be worth the wait. I realise that I'm part of a shrinking group still backing Valve's SteamOS-powered Linux boxes, and it's not difficult to see why the hype around them has all but evaporated. Several controller-related delays, U-turns by seemingly committed hardware partners and a lack of news from the top has made many think that Valve is blowing hot air.
