Crozix: I'm a bit mixed on Gentoo Linux.
It meets all requirements I want in a desktop system and I enjoy using Gentoo Linux; it also has a lot of annoying points, mainly the compiling, USE flags, and configuring kernel.
The compiling just takes time and resources.
I can't find any information on how to best manage USE flags.
And configuring the kernel was the reason I stopped using Gentoo the last time I used it. A kernel update had removed options that I needed to get the graphics card to work, and the wiki had not updated that information until my system was so irreparable that I had delete everything.

jeandelinuxpc :p: Nano? Why!?

No Names: To build a perfect car out of individual parts or just to go to a car dealership and purchase one?
The answer is obvious. Same with Gentoo.

katamari on the jeej: Thanks for Explaining Everything I understood it all Ok

Aman Sharma: Rip Headphone users 7:35

dalcap: :) An old story... The gist of it.. Source Code verses Binary Installs... My opinion -- I am waiting for the day when a custom tailor compiler can be generated to a customers parts source list then used to compiled a users computer. :) Of course Apple has been doing that for years with their single purpose computers. And also why their products last for many years. Yeah Gentoo is pretty nice and with patience an EXPERT user gets zero percent fat in an operating system !

Nguyễn Văn Đức: is gentoo for beginner

Nailinyourhead: GOOD REVIEW SUBSCRIBED!! Installed Gentoo. It took me 4 tries (reinstalls) to find my optimized setup --that's what i think for now but will obviously be recompiling more, lots to do in Gentoo.

Tinashe Gumbe: It makes the most out of the kernel 😂 merry Christmas and Christmas box 😂😁

Pavel Suk: Is there some Gentoo-based distro which does not update so often?

†ACIÐЖЩITCH†: Gentoofags are mentally ill

AspiePaul: damn, i was really hoping for 13 and a half minutes of rick astley...

Jimmy Jonsson: Clockwork video! I run my company entirely on Gentoo. It is the best development environment so far.

Steven: Me: Installs Gentoo. Finds out that stable packages are over a year old. Wants new packages. Changes system to unstable (unmasks packages.) Installs a freakton of apps. Configures many use flags because I don't know what the freak I want/need to configure. Compiles the "world" set (600 packages.) 9 hours later, compiler halts. The error message says "you misconfigured an obscure package, you stupid dumbfreaking goy." Changes some use flags and try again. 11 hours later, compilation stops and the compiler spits out 4 separate error messages. Scrolls back terminal just to see all of the errors. Wades through literally hundreds of log files just to find one of the errors. Finds the log file for the first error. Opens the log file and scrolls through hundreds of lines just to find the root of the first error. "A random file for this obscure package is missing. Good luck finding out why. Oh, and freak you." Thanks, portage. Welp. Looks like I wasted 20+ hours of my life configuring and compiling for no freaking reason AT ALL. Uninstalls Gentoo. Goes back to using Arch, where I don't need to care if my packages "support" Java or not. Oh, and installs take seconds, not hours.

dʒeɪms: its gnu/linux or as i've recently taken to calling it gnu plus linux. i also accept liGNUx.

Dan Man: I can understand the enthusiasm for a clean system but as for spending weeks learning & optimizing to save miliseconds in load time doesn't seem rational to me.

Computer Nerd: I don't get how most of the Linux community believes in noobs distros. From my point of view systems like Ubuntu are more advanced then stuff like like Gentoo and Slack, unless you have a very specific reason to want to use these distros, why bother? In the end, Linux is Linux, they all use the same programs, functions the same just different commands under the hood. I believe the only thing that Linux needs to be perfect is a unified package management system. Maybe they can keep their systems but all migrate to a universal package system that all Distros can take from.

Đức Dynamo: I'm a newbie I want using gentoo it's right.

Jari Sipilainen: haha,but you can build that same kernel for every linux and you got axactly same. its same freaking kernel. isnt it?

Jari Sipilainen: and then you .sudo apt-get install ubuntu-gnome. LOL
