And X-7 works only without DRI (I know how to configure it; the drivers for the common i810, radeon2500, nvidia cards are not working properly).
Gentoo has no long term support, by that I mean it's not a release
distro that keeps "old" stuff and fixes it for a certain amount of time.
Gentoo just moves on.
It's not a technical problem, allthough this approach has its downsides
as you already pointed out. But it is Gentoo's philosophy.
