27 You're living right not in competition. If you're on an island
28 you compete with animals for food and water. If you're in a condo - hell,
29 you know how many on this planet WISH to live in your house right now and
30 what stops them from doing that?
32 And you belive that you're outside competition. It looks unreal.
33 Gentoo is in competition with other distros - it's real and happens
34 right now.
36 Are you absolutely sure that in the condition when nobody knows how
37 Portage works we may go that far as saying we have a healthy Penguin?
