gentooexperimental.org: I've been busy collecting some really great stories from people using Gentoo in places that I really didn't expect. There are some gems like this one:

Does it come with includes or?

blog.flameeyes.eu: Shared objects are, generally, a good thing because they allow different programs to share the same code in memory; this is why we consider shared libraries better than the static archives. Unfortunately, simply using, boilerplate, a shared object is a bad thing: you need to know what you’re doing.

For me, Gentoo is about *convenient* choice

draketo.de: It's often said, that Gentoo is all about choice, but that doesn't quite fit what it is for me. The highest ability to choose is Linux from scratch. What really distinguishes Gentoo for me is that it makes it convenient to choose.

blog.flameeyes.eu: You might have noticed that I started working on cleaning up the tree (before I had a few problems with my system, but that’s for another day). Some people wondered whether that’s really going to make much difference, so I wanted to take a look.

My Love/Hate Relationship

obsidianprofile.com: Oh, Gentoo, how I really find myself hating you sometimes. Once upon a time, Gentoo Linux was a thriving community distro. These days, I've been finding it harder and harder to find solid answers.

  • FreeBSD 11.0-RELEASE Needs To Be Respun Due To Security Issues
    The delayed FreeBSD 11.0 release just suffered another last-minute set-back. While "FreeBSD 11.0-RELEASE images" were distributed to FTP mirrors and the official announcement expected today, these images need to be re-spun to contain some security fixes and thus pushing back the official release. Glen Barber noted today on the mailing list, "Although the FreeBSD 11.0-RELEASE has not yet been officially announced, many have found images on the Project FTP mirrors. However, please be aware the final 11.0-RELEASE will be rebuilt and republished on the Project mirrors as a result of a few last-minute security fixes we feel are imperative to include in the final release."
  • FreeBSD 11.0 Operating System Lands October 5 Due to Last-Minute Security Issues
    A few minutes ago, Glen Barber informed the FreeBSD community that they should not hurry and install the ISO images of the FreeBSD 11.0 operating system made available a few days ago on the official FTP mirrors. These images aren't safe to use and contain various security vulnerabilities that need to be fixed before the FreeBSD Project will officially unveil the final release of the FreeBSD 11.0 operating system in the coming days. According to the release schedule, FreeBSD 11.0 should hit the streets later today, September 29, 2016. However, until then the FreeBSD development team is hard at work patching those nasty security issues and rebuilding the final ISO images, which will be made available on the respective FTP mirrors later today as FreeBSD 11.0-RELEASE-p1. If you're already running FreeBSD 11.0-RELEASE, you will soon be provided with instructions to safely update your system
  • OpenBSD Founder Calling For LLVM To Face A Cataclysm Over Its Re-Licensing
    For over one year there's been talk of LLVM pursuing a mass relicensing from its University of Illinois/NCSA Open Source License, which is similar to the three-clause BSD license, to the Apache 2.0 license with explicit mention of GPLv2 compatibility. As mentioned in that aforelinked article, this re-licensing is moving ahead.
