Ubuntu -> Gentoo

As my exploration of GNU/Linux continues, I've decided to move from perhaps the most user-friendly distros ( to one of the "hardcore" distros, Gentoo (

Now, many Ubuntu users will be perplexed as to why I would move away from the most supported linux distro....

Because it's fun.

That's right, linux started out as a hobbyists operating system, something people would develop and use for the pure enjoyment of it. While projects like Ubuntu are bringing linux closer to becoming a real option for the average desktop, most distrobutions are still very much just for fun. (,,

Anyway, if you're interested in some Gentoo fun, check out!
