    In the last few weeks I found myself cursing at gentoo very often (though all my problems of course actually were pretty much my own fault of course).
    Hehe the relation between a man and his gentoo system is very similar with that one between a man and a woman

    You either love or hate gentoo.
    If you don't love it, you misunderstand it's ways. Fortunately for me I LOVE it

    i think that's because everybody thinks that install cd/dvd defines the distribution. as in "new install disk = new version"

    which, in case of gentoo, is totally false. mostly because you do not need gentoo livecd/dvd to install it.

    any livecd/dvd/usb/installed distro that has kernel 2.6, chroot command and network working will do.

    @jeffro-tull, Ant P., and yoshi314:

    Thanks, the last three of you. That makes me, your resident Gentoo Linux developer, feel all warm and tingly. You said everything I wanted to say without me needing to say it. You all hit the nail on the head, so give yourselves a pat on the back.

    Shame on Michael for making those kinds of statements. Apparently he falls into the trap of thinking "if they aren't making some huge hoopla every three months for a quartlerly point release, it's a dead distro."

    Please. Who else does weekly releases? Anyone? If there are any other distros that make weekly releases, the list is vanishingly small. It's smallminded to assume that our weekly Gentoo releases "don't count as real releases" or some such BS.

    there are regular autobuilds of stages and install media every few days, you know. it's just that that one was more carefully tested and prepared for 10th anniversary. and there was a lot of noise around it, so outsiders actually noticed.

    Glad I wasn't the only one put off by that remark. When I read it, all I could think to myself was "huh, I didn't know they died. Especially since I installed it a mere three months back on one of my rigs."

    Yeah, Gentoo has just slow down speeds.

    Gentoo was never really dead, it just doesn't follow the Microsoft development model of shovelling broken, unfinished crap out to a deadline every few months like some more heavily marketed distros.
