Exploring Gentoo

The last few days, I am playing with Gentoo Linux. I have read loads of reviews that talked highly about this distro. But even then I have to say that I am very much impressed by Gentoo’s speed and versatility.

Looking at the last few years, I can see that I am regularly changing my Desktop Linux distro every two months. First it was Fedora, then Debian (which followed a series of Debian based distros.. Kanotix, Ubuntu) , SuSE and now Gentoo. No matter which distro I start with, after a few weeks the Operating environment will deviate very much from the standard out-of-box installation. At least with Gentoo, I think I have an option to run the official packages.
