Actually, I still think that agriffis was correct in his assertion that most devs work on Gentoo for their own interests, and that the developers are our distro's primary consumers. It is amazing that so many others find our work useful, and we very much appreciate the Gentoo community that has formed. Consequently, we are willing to do our best to provide a distro that scratches our users itches as well as our own, but ultimately it is developer self-interest that keeps things going. -g2boojum- -- Grant Goodyear Gentoo Developer g2boojum@g.o http://www.gentoo.org/~g2boojum GPG Fingerprint: D706 9802 1663 DEF5 81B0 9573 A6DC 7152 E0F6 5B76
