The Goal of Funtoo

| We are not a “fork” of Gentoo in the traditional sense of the word, though of
| course we are trying to do things better (otherwise, what would be the point
| of doing anything?) We are trying to aim to be as compatible with Gentoo as
| possible, so that it is easy for us to share technology with Gentoo.

KDE 4.1.2 Unmasked in Gentoo

,----[ Quote ]
| Jorge beat me to it... I am very pleased to announce that KDE 4.1.2 is in the
| Gentoo official tree and I unmasked it a little earlier today. I think that
| all the big bugs have been squashed but there may be a few left lurking. I
| have learnt a lot more than I ever really wanted to about KDE initialization
| but hopefully that has helped me to improve the KDE experience in Gentoo.


Gentoo still rules

| Gentoo is pretty good for this kind of thing, whatever its other
| shortcomings. Does any other distro make it this easy to do such things? (I'm
| genuinely curious.)


Viva Gentoo

| Talking about a light desktop, there is now a Gentoo project to bring LXDE,
| the Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment, to our beloved distro. I already
| committed PCManFM, a fast and lightweight, tabbed GTK+ file manager, which is
| used as the default file manager in LXDE.


Satisfied Gentoo users

| If you, like me, would rather “think positive” — life can be depressing

| satisfied Gentoo users...


I keep coming back to Gentoo!

| And in general, portage and all the gentoo associated tools feel better,
| maybe because I have become more accustomed to them. And final point, I do
| not have to install g++, it is already installed. The toolchain is already
| there to compile anything that I want.
