One of the few still maintained Linux distributions derived from Gentoo is Calculate Linux, which saw a new release today in preparing for the new year.

Calculate Linux 20 is based upon newer Gentoo sources, builds all packages now using GCC 9.2, has dropped 32-bit support, various Emerge and overlay changes, the xf86-video-modesetting driver is finally supported, MPV has replaced MPlayer as the media player, Xfce 4.14 is now available, Cronie replaced Vixie-cron for job scheduling, and a variety of other changes and improvements for this desktop-focused Gentoo-based distribution.
