I would also like to add that some of us can't download like others. I,
for example, am on dial-up and a sucky one at that. I have to order
most everything because it would take me a week or longer to download
about any CD. I don't even want to think if I had to boot from the 2007
CD and install from scratch. Typing in the commands, no problem at
all. Waiting to download all the packages, HUGE problem.
I love options and Gentoo has a lot of them. I would also like to have
options available just in case the unthinkable happens. I would most
likely install Mandrake, old version that I still have, and then install
Gentoo from there.
Anyone gave this any thought? There are still a LOT of dial-up users
out here. People seem to forget that, especially the website with all
the huge pages. My Space comes to mind on that.
Just a thought.
