Why should I switch to gentoo?


download a liveCD from a gentoo mirror nearby and install it :)


Here are some points pro and contra gentoo:
- flexibility and control over the system
- very fast security response and updated packages
- great community including huge forum, active irc help channels and more
- every packet gets compiled with flags for YOUR machine
- very good documentation
- gentoo is about choices, YOU pick what you want to have installed or what the programs should support.
- excellent dependency management
- your system can be cutting edge or using only stable packages, your choice.
- to see what packages got updated in the last 2 days, look on the bottom right panel on this site.
- once it is installed, updating/upgrading packages and system works with minimal work.
- You wont have to reinstall the system when a new version is released. Gentoo has no install versions. (Only the LiveCD has this)

- installing packages takes longer, because every packet gets compiled (see pro entry about compiling)
- install process is hand work, no "click next" graphical auto-installer
