silentcoder.co.za: Gentoo has rightfully become the distribution of choice among hackers. It’s powerful, fast, and extremely customizable. The source based builds lets you tweak packages to your needs. The man most primarily responsible for this is Daniel Robbins - the man who started gentoo, and if you’ve been following his blogs over the past few weeks - it’s scary.
blog.funtoo.org (Daniel Robbins): It looks like someone nominated me for the upcoming Gentoo trustee election. Before I know how to reply to this nomination, I need to know if it is even valid.
