Have you ran debian lately, can you even say its a current binary distro
(current as of redhat 6) and why do people not like using mandrake and redhat
after they start using linux one they are a company and not a community and
two RPM's based distro break
Is there a way to make like a i586 or i686 based distro but optimize it for
all the above faster processors ( i know there a reason for -mcpu= ) i
really dont think i386 and i486 binary's are needed (debian works great for
these cause the systems are just about as old as debian current)
I didnt want to cause a flame war over this, this is the type of response i
get from debian user's i dont want gentoo becoming like debian in this
Another issue is portablity how hard is it to release source based cd's
(containing all the gentoo source which possible could be updated weekly or
monthly) this would target mostly dialup linux users or users with restricted
net access. this was worked on then kinda disapeared . ?
