The fraction-of-time-to-setup feature comes from the fact that portage (package manager) does most of the work for you - and that was exactly my point - emerging xorg-x11 is much less time-consuming than downloading, patching and compiling it manually, which is not something everyone can afford to invest time into. Note that I politely ignore your binary-distro argument. -- Andrej "Ticho" Kacian <ticho at gentoo dot org> Gentoo Linux Developer - net-mail, antivirus, amd64
