Yesterday:

Move over Mandriva, I think I’m in love!

,----[ Quote ]
| Well, up until now I have been really liking 2 flavors of Linux Mandriva and
| Ubuntu. Mandriva because I have found it to be the most stable version I have
| found yet, and Ubuntu because of bleeding edge aps, and the balls to take on
| some very impressive work (bringing Linux together, and making it user
| friendly)
|
| But… I think I have stumbled upon something amazing. *I will be installing
| this next week, and experimenting to let you know how it goes. I have
| discovered Gentoo.

Does Gentoo make sense?

,----[ Quote
| Contrast it with installing binary packages. You can never be sure that you
| are not missing a library or if they have a conflicting version.
| Conceptually, Gentoo vs. Ubuntu is analogous to compiled and statically typed
| languages, e.g. C++ or Java, versus interpreted and dynamically typed
| languages, e.g. Python or Ruby.
|
| Interpreted and dynamically typed languages enjoy a shorter development cycle
| but are somewhat more brittle whereas compiled and statically typed languages
| have a slower development cycle but are often deemed more reliable.

Why I Use Gentoo?

,----[ Quote ]
| So, I have been asked this question many times. And of course the assumption
| is that I am some sort of a masochist who enjoys wasting time on compiling
| packages. However, that is not entirely true. There are some other reasons
| why, after trying Ubuntu (started linux with it), Gentoo and then Arch I
| settled on Gentoo.
