Don't let testing4l hear you say that. 8) And he got me hooked on it, so I'm quite interested to know why.

any distro, so long as you are not required to compile everything.

That's for sure.. Debian and apt-get just have a special place in my heart though

that's why I run apt in Red Hat. :D

yum is pretty cool too.

gentoo is a linux distribution for people that are IMHO somewhat deranged.

Gentoo people don't have friends anyways, they're too busy compiling.

and the gentoo installer didn't send you running for the hills? perhaps installer is too strong a word:

fdisk /dev/hda
mke2fs /dev/hda1....

;)

/me goes back to installing centos

Well sure if you don't have to install it yourself ;)

You say "get up to date in Debian" like it's even possible.

Emerge fills my heart with such joy that words cannot express its full measure. Truly, Gentoo is the distribution of the gods, and no other distribution is worthy to even lace its sandal.

(The fact that the install process sucks might matter someday, when I don't have access to rsync. Heh.)

That is SUCH a catchy song. I sw them in concert a few years ago and they played that one with some sort of accompanying light projection show. It also helped me remember an answer to a question once on my astronomy and cosmology exam. :)

You dont have to compile to everything... At least once the portage tree is installed. It's only a 4 hour long install once you have done it 30-40 times ;)
