Re: Are we losing users to Gentoo?
I'm contemplating switching to Gentoo for the following reasons:
- Compiles source very trouble free from almost any tgz on the web
- Seems VERY up-to-date
- More friendly to newcomers (in my opinion)
- Not likely to switch to Hurd some day
- Not so close to GNU as Debian is, so can get fair take on:
- Not really a distrobution--more like a centralized source repository
- Seems like a more simplified system altogether..
I like Debian mostly for the disciplined systems.
