I never meant to say that it's NOT beneficial to Gentoo. I've stated
publicly, numerous times since the very beginning in emails, on IRC,
twitter, etc. that the fact that ChromeOS uses Portage is and will be
quite beneficial to us in many ways. If you recall my recent email to
gentoo-core, I specifically talked about this.

Please don't take my pedantic definition-wrangling as anything but pedantry.

All I've been saying is that it's *misleading* to users for us to say
that Google uses Gentoo on its Chrome Books. Google uses Gentoo's
portage tools to build ChromeOS, which is hence arguably a
*derivative* of Gentoo, but not really Gentoo.

This is precisely what Mike said in his last email, and resolved his
initial statement for me, which was ambiguous from my PoV.
