Great! Sorry if I sounded a bit harsh (on rereading what I wrote it
sounded like I was angry). My favorite part of Gentoo is its ability to
keep the system lean and clean with the whole portage system (like
FreeBSD's ports tree) I start to get frustrated when it becomes
difficult to manage this and you start needing to edit the ebuilds by
"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary
safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
