Looks good. Some thoughts:

* It would be great if the screen shots would state versions at least of 
the desktop environment and a date it was taken. I know nothing about 
what version each is, but there are two dates at least: XFCE 
2002-04-07/08 and KDE on 2002-04-14.

* The chronology title should show that it is a chronology of early 
Gentoo history. Reading it today it seems to say "nothing happened in 
Gentoo since 2002"

* The "introduction" could give a little more background. The important 
thing here is that Gentoo is turning 10. For the last ten years, we're 
committed to bringing an cutting edge source based distro to users that 
need more flexibility than binary packages can give them.
How the exact date of celebration was agreed on should be secondary in 
there IMO.

Cool page!
Please do not use <th> for table content, it ends up all blue. I think 
<ti> is for content?

You could also add the radiotux interviews (in German) of dertobi123:
