Good to know something useful is happening in our capital this year (grin).

There is still a serious misperception out there among non-users
that Gentoo is about performance.  This needs to be corrected:
I believe we all use it for the choice & control it offers.

Perhaps there's also a disadvantage in that Gentoo doesn't receive
the commercial publicity behind Ubuntu, Fedora & Suse,
nor does it have the ancient history of Slackware & Debian.

I continue to be as happy a user as I have always been since 2003 .
