Thanks Robert,

What about;

Introduction

Gentoo is turning 10. For the last ten years, Gentoo has been committed 
to bringing the cutting edge source based distro to users that need more 
flexibility than binary packages can give them. With a vibrant community 
and over 300 developers, much has been accomplished since the beginning.

The anniversary date of 1999-10-04 was decided on by a couple of key 
dates in Gentoo's history. The name Enoch was changed to Gentoo and the 
domain name gentoo.org was registered. The founder of Gentoo Daniel 
Robbins, gives us this chronology.
